@Leonard and Purlpledevil,

 

When I drove to work on 4/18 around 9 or 10 AM I saw the bayou flowing over the deck of the Heights bridges and was forced to drive over the Yale bridge. Luckily the Yale bridge was left open even though that was the original date it was supposed to be closed.

Yeah, when I went to Yale Street on a Tuesday (by that time the waters had largely subsided, and the depressed part of I-10 was perfectly dry), the bridge had a lane closed off but seemed to be open at least northbound.

Yes it does.  Here is a map of the extension:

 

 

I found the new trail yesterday - had to go "off-road" a bit as it's still under construction !!  I actually rode down the section in your pics you just posted

I'm ready for it to be done, both the trail and the bridge.  How much of the trail would you say is paved so far?

The connector piece to the Heights bike trail isn't done yet (that's where I went off-road) and I couldn't get past Yale as they were working on the bridge and trail and had it all blocked off - there was a small patch in between those two points that wasn't done also

I am interested in the connection of this trail to the one that goes past Stude Park (MKT?) It is a separate project that appears to be ready to go but the COH GIMS website which has estimated construction start dates for it keeps moving it back every 3 months for the past year.

Anyone know more about the food truck kiosk site between yale and heights on east/west and white oak/EB feeder?  

 

There is a sign for it by Texas CRES.  Would love to see that brush cleaned up and the urban campers removed.

It could easily be finished by the end of the year if enough resources are thrown at it.  After all, the MacArthur Maze connector in Oakland was rebuilt and reopened less than a month after it collapsed in a pretty spectacular tanker fire.  Granted, there was a bit more urgency to reopening two major metropolitan freeway connector ramps.
