The city of Lewisville is almost done with a 4.2-mile trail and 3.6-mile bike lane that is shared with vehicles alongside Garden Ridge Boulevard and South Valley Parkway. Once completed, the 12-foot-wide trail will 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 is required, as is any amount exceeding the initial estimate of $2.1 million.

Timeline: August 2015-Spring 2020

Cost: $2.6 million

Funding sources: TxDOT, NCTCOG, city of Lewisville
