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.
