Trinity Trail Closed in Fort Worth

For those of you who ride the Trinity River Trail near University Drive in Fort Worth, be aware that the construction zone in that area has been enlarged and is no longer possible to use the trail to cross University Drive.

A friend of mine offered this alternative, which cuts through the University Village shopping center.

This detour goes around the closed section with a minimum of exposure to heavy car traffic. If heading toward downtown, exit the trail on Rogers, proceed north, then turn right on Collinsworth, a left on Wabash, and go into the shopping center. Turn right on the shopping center road that leads to the traffic light at University and Old University. Cross University at the light and follow Old University to the little traffic circle at its end, where there is access to get back onto the Trinity Trail.

This work was discussed on Fortworthology in September. At the the time I got the impression it would affect more of the trail than it has to date, with the trail closed between Rogers and University.
