Upgrades planned for Lake Granbury’s four park areas continue this spring with a road-repaving project that will make access to both recreation and boat ramp areas at the reservoir safer and more convenient. The Brazos River Authority Board of Directors approved a project in January to completely rehab the park road system, including widening and extending roads and adding drainage culverts.
“We’re very excited to begin this leg of our park upgrade project,” said Connie Tucker, Lake Granbury project manager. “The project will include removing the existing surfaces, recompacting the base materials and resurfacing all roadways.”
The road project kicks off March 18 at DeCordova Bend Park. The park will be closed to the public beginning at 5 p.m., Sunday, March 17. During construction, each park will be closed to all recreation, boating and fishing access for approximately two to four weeks; however, at least two parks will be available to the public for lake-access throughout this period. Construction on Rough Creek Park will begin toward the end of March followed by Hunter and Thorp Spring Parks in April and May. The full project is expected to be completed by mid-June at a cost in excess of $675,000.
