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. 

October Update: We have an upcoming change to the traffic pattern that will allow the construction of the following phase of the Great Oaks Drive Bridge project. The new traffic configuration includes opening Hairy Man Road from Great Oaks Ave. to the east and prohibiting trucks through the work zone. This is anticipated to begin on October 31, 2022, and last for 3-4 months, weather and supply permittingThe Brushy Creek Regional Trail near the project will remain closed across Great Oaks Ave. 

As a reminder, truck traffic will be detoured to Great Oaks Drive, Avery Ranch Boulevard and West Parmer Lane (see attached map). This detour is necessary to provide safe passage during the construction required to complete the project. Minimal delays are expected. 

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.

The Great Oaks Drive at Brushy Creek Road Intersection will be a 4-way stop starting Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2023. This work is part of the Phase 4 traffic control plan and will allow the contractor to remove the existing Great Oaks Bridge over Brushy Creek to complete the Great Oaks bridge and retaining wall along Brushy Creek Road. Minimal delays are expected.
