Wildhorse Creek Trail and Arkansas River Trail Closures

The levee work on the Arkansas River has begun. The levee will be lowered 12 feet from its current height. The project requires alternate routes for users of the Wildhorse Creek trail, south of Pete Jimenez Park, and the trail on the north side of the Arkansas River, which is between Dutch Clark Stadium and the Board of WaterWorks’ Whitlock Plant.

The closures provide access for equipment and materials coming to and from the project area. The first of the four phases will include a 3300 ft stretch of the levee from 11th Street to Dutch Clark Stadium. This phase is expected to be completed by April of 2015. The entire project will be done in four phases, during the winter months to take advantage of lower water levels, and is expected to be complete in four years. 

Below are the photos of closed access points and the map of the closed and alternate trails.
