Lou Neff Point Restoration and Widening

lou-neff-point-restoration-austinIn 2004, we were awarded a grant from Texas Parks and Wildlife to widen and restore Lou Neff Point (the hairpin turn where Barton Creek meets Lady Bird Lake).  This notorious “pinch point” was a hot spot for biker/runner/walker collisions due to its change in elevation and narrow passage.  Crumbling retaining walls added to the urgency.  After securing additional funding from Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, Stillwater Foundation, friends of Nancy Kohler and TTF members, work began in April 2006.  The project was completed in June 2006.  A heartfelt thank you to Sitio Design Group for their vision and hard work!
