The Texas Department of Transportation closed Central Expressway a few weeks back to put in a cool new bridge that allows pedestrians and cyclists to cross between the White Rock Creek and Northaven trails. It opened on Monday. It took fewer than four days for an SUV to give it a try.

Another driver recently took in White Rock Lake from the pedestrian trail, well before our SUV went cruising over the highway.
