TRA Notice Map


  • Pipe installation continues through Bear Creek Park. Due to weather delays, Bear Creek Park, trails, playground, batting cages, and baseball fields remain closed. However, The Bark Park at Bear Creek Park is open.


  • TRA ended up having to remove a couple of panels of trail to get a tunnel down below.  The sidewalk closed signs have been moved to the location area marked in pink.  We anticipate this will be closed for a couple of weeks until TRA can pull the pipe through the tunnel and add a piece to get past the trail

Thalle Construction Company, Inc. has been contracted by the Trinity River Authority of Texas to construct the Bear Creek Interceptor Segment 09BC-1, Phase 2 Project for the Central Regional Wastewater System. Construction is in progress near your neighborhood.

WHY: This project will replace the existing pipeline infrastructure that is currently located in the same corridor to improve overall system service.

WHAT YOU MAY SEE: There will be construction activity related to installing pipe, and there will be heavy equipment and industrial lighting used on the project. Expect temporary trail closures to ensure safety.

WHAT YOU MAY HEAR: The sound of pumps, generators and heavy equipment may be heard intermittently.

WHAT YOU WILL SMELL: There may be occasional odors associated with the project as we make connections to an existing pipeline and divert wastewater to a new pipeline.
