Great Oaks Drive Bridge at Brushy Creek
Location Intersection of Great Oaks Drive and Brushy Creek
Description   Bridge replacement over Brushy Creek on Great Oaks Drive. This project also will improve the intersection of Great Oaks Drive and Brushy Creek Road / Hairy Man Road. Improvements will include intersection improvements, removal of the existing bridge, a new 4-lane bridge, dedicated left-turn lanes in all directions, dedicated right-turn lanes for traffic moving northbound to eastbound and eastbound to southbound, and shared thru-right lanes for traffic moving westbound to northbound and southbound to westbound. This project will include additional parking and will also modify the trail to provide a safe passageway under the roadway.

Construction on the project began in September 2021 and is planned to be completed in spring 2023. 

Detour Update: Due to some heavy rains in the past month, the Hairy Man Road closure from Sam Bass Road to Great Oaks Drive will remain in effect until approximately the end of October 2022, weather pending. Traffic is detoured to Brightwater and Creek Bend Blvd.  Local traffic on Hairy Man Rd is allowed from Sam Bass Road to Alto Lane.  This detour is necessary to provide safe passage during the construction necessary to complete the project.  Minimal delays are expected. View the detour map.

For pedestrian and bicycle safety, the Brushy Creek Regional Trail near the project area will be closed until closer to the completion of the bridge. A map of the closure area is below. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause our trail users. View the trail closure map.
