Santa Fe Trail detour updated May 20. Photo courtesy of TxDOT.

The detour route for the Sante Fe Trail around construction at the Gaston-Garland-Grand intersection has been updated.

The Texas Department of Transportation released the new map today. It shifts the detour route so trail users no longer have to cross the intersection.

Starting today, pedestrians can use Gaston Avenue, Tucker Street, La Vista and Corona Street to avoid some of the construction and hop back on the Santa Fe Trail south of La Vista.

This is a change from the previous detour route, which had trail users crossing through the middle of the ongoing construction.

Detours have been implemented at this intersection because the trail bridge over Garland Road is closed through early fall.

Weather permitting, the project as a whole is expected to be completed in spring 2023.
