The city of Lewisville is nearing completion on the construction of a 4.2-mile trail and 3.6-mile bike lane that will be shared with vehicles alongside Garden Ridge Boulevard and South Valley Parkway.

Although the city originally estimated that the project would be completed in February, officials say the project is now on track to be finished in April due to weather delays.

The 12-foot-wide trail is designed to connect Highlands Park to Garden Ridge Boulevard. It will also serve as a connector between the Denton County Transportation Authority station in Highland Village and the Municipal Annex.

The city got a grant for the project from the Texas Department of Transportation and the North Central Texas Council of Governments. A local match of $506,118 was required, as was any amount exceeding the initial estimate of $2.1 million.

Timeline: August 2015-April 2020


Cost: $2.6 million

Funding sources: TxDOT, NCTCOG, city of Lewisville
