This article was archived on 12/7/2016

Joe Creek Trail will be closed beginning March 7, 2016 for trail reconstruction.

Joe Creek Trail is currently a gravel trail, but after reconstruction it will be a fully functional asphalt trail. The asphalt trail will be along the west side of Joe Creek, which will be 10-feet wide. Two grades will also separate street crossings under the Riverside Parkway Bridges and the 71st Street Bridges.

Construction is expected to be complete in six months. Signs will be placed along the trail regarding the closure.

The estimated cost for trail improvements is $2,070,400. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation will provide $600,000 through the Transportation Enhancement Program and the City of Tulsa will provide the remaining funds from the 2006 Third Penny, Fix Our Streets and Improve Our Tulsa funding.
