This gateway area, invites visitors and neighbors to the Trinity River providing a glimpse of the Great Trinity Forest and the natural meanders of the Trinity River. Immediately south of the bridge and adjacent to the river is the Upper Chain of Wetlands. This important flood protection project will provide a continuous pathway for floodwaters during heavy rain to travel from just below Moore Park all the way to Great Trinity Forest Way (Loop 12), where the water then rejoins the main channel of the river.

MLK/Cedar Crest Bridge Gateway has enhanced gateways on both ends of the bridge with parking.  This areas serve as small pocket park-like places for people to easily walk or bike to the Trinity Outlook, near the center of the bridge, to take a break while viewing the scenic views along the Trinity River corridor. 

Look for future trail access providing a link for hikers and bikers to pass through the Upper Chain of Wetlands to Moore Park and the Santa Fe Trestle Trail to the north and to Great Trinity Forest Way (Loop 12) and the Trinity Forest Trails. the Texas Horse Park, Trinity River Audubon Center, and Trinity Forest Gold Course toward the south.
