The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is releasing water from Lake Georgetown due to high lake levels caused by recent rainfall.
A release rate over approximately 517 cubic feet per second will close the low water crossings along the North San Gabriel River on the Randy Morrow Trail, including the crossings at River Road near Booty’s Road Park, the crossing under the I-35 bridge, and the crossing upstream from Rivery Park. Please do not attempt to cross any part of the trail that water is flowing over, and obey any barricades that may be present.
Visit the Lake Georgetown website at www.swf-wc.usace.army.mil/georgetown to see the current release rate and check ATXFloods.com for the status of road closures at low water crossings in Central Texas.
The Parks and Recreation Department is evaluating options for the replacement of damaged sections on the pedestrian crossing over the San Gabriel River in San Gabriel Park. The bridge was damaged during flooding in September 2018.
