Bicycle commuters, take note.

Part of the Shoal Creek hike and bike trail will be closed starting today.

The portion of the trail that connects the Lance Armstrong Bikeway to Third Street will be closed during construction of the Central Library and Second Street bridge. Work on those projects won’t finish until 2016.

In the meantime, bicyclists are asked to detour onto Cesar Chavez Street and use the bicycle lanes on San Antonio Street. The detour will be finished Aug. 27.
