The modernization of the Great Northern Dam should be complete around Thanksgiving. The new sidewalk and maintenance road are mostly complete as are the spillway and large portions of the retaining walls. The City of Austin has temporarily closed part of the path between Shoal Creek Blvd. and the construction site. Folks are still
able to reach the pedestrian bridge over MoPac by going through the neighborhood to Great Northern Blvd. and then using the new sidewalk to reach the pedestrian bridge.
