Because Life is Better at the Lake

Detours planned for 2 Cedar Creek Lake roads during Integrated Pipeline Project work


David Webb is a veteran journalist who has written for the mainstream and alternative media for three decades. He is now a freelancer who lives in the Cedar Creek Lake area.

Two roads near Trinidad will be closed and replaced by detour roads to allow work on the Integrated Pipeline Project in August.

Key Ranch Road and Old River Road will be closed as a construction crew for Tarrant Regional Water District, which owns Cedar Creek Lake water reservoir, runs a pipeline about 10 feet under the roads. The work is expected to take about seven days.

Many roads in the Cedar Creek Lake area will be affected by the pipeline project, which is expected to become operational in 2018 and meet future water needs for decades. The work in August will be in the western side of Henderson County.

When complete the pipeline project will transport water from Lake Palestine, Lake Benbrook, Cedar Creek Lake and Richland Chambers Reservoir to communities in both Tarrant and Dallas Counties.

The 150-mile pipeline project is a joint effort by TRWD and Dallas Water Utilities.
