The city of Round Rock officially opened a 1.13-mile extension of the Brushy Creek Regional Trail on June 5.

The newest section is a 10-foot-wide concrete trail that stretches from A.W. Grimes to Georgetown Street. The trail features a pedestrian underpass beneath a private drive, a bridge over Brushy Creek and benches for seating along the path.

Funding for the $2.7 million trail extension came from a 2014 voter-approved bond.
