The White Oak Hike and Bike Trail along T.C. Jester is gonna have a hitch in its get-along starting Monday morning.

At 5 a.m. that day, the trail will be closed where it goes under the 610 Loop as part of road repairs, TxDOT says. It will stay closed at least until Fall 2013.

"Construction crews will be working on the total demolition and reconstruction of the four IH 610 mainlane and frontage road bridges at T.C. Jester," the agency says. "For the safety of the traveling public and construction crews, the hike and bike trail will remain closed until the four bridges are rebuilt."

Your detours:

- Northbound Detour - use Ella northbound to 34th Street, westbound on 34th Street to E. T.C. Jester.

- Southbound Detour - use 34th eastbound to Ella, southbound on Ella to E. T.C. Jester.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
