Small portion of Comal River closed due to fallen tree

A large tree has fallen across a section of the Comal River near Camp Wamecke. Officials say the section from the Garden Street Bridge to the Last Tuber’s Exit will be closed until the tree is completely removed along with any other debris.

Officials say all tuber traffic must exit at the Garden Street Bridge and local river outfitters have been notified of the situation.

City Park Rangers will be assisting tubers with exiting at the Garden Street Bridge.

A contractor is scheduled to being the removal process at 1 p.m. and it’s expected to take several hours.
