MoPac Mobility Bridges Description

Cyclists in Austin have a reason to celebrate with the 2017 opening of the South MoPac Bridges. The new non-motorized travel infrastructure took about more than 10 years  from concept to concrete, and now provides a safe conduit between southwest Austin and downtown, safely separated from the harried pace of the MoPac expressway.

The South MoPac Bridges project actualy has 3 components:

  • Bike-ped  bridge over Loop 360 at MoPac.
  • Bike-ped bridge over Barton Creek at MoPac. This bridge spans 1045 ft and towers up to 70 ft over the gorge in at its highest point.
  • Multi-purpose trail on the west side of MoPac, stretching from Loop 360 north to Tamarron Boulevard

The 14 ft-wide pathway is separated into north- and southbound lanes. As it climbs curves and falls, it connects to existing multiuse trails in Austin’s trail network, including the Barton Creek Greenbelt Trail, Violet Crown Trail and the trails in Oak Hills.

Parking and Trail Access

There are several access points to the Bridges: the northern access point is at Tuscan Terrace. The southern access point is located at 4425 S MoPac Expy. There is a third possible starting point, close to the southern terminus, located along the 290 Service Rd near the Best Buy.
