Trail construction

The beginning of the extention of the Spring Creek Trail. This pic is taken looking east, a few feet north (I think it was on the north side!) of the railroad track, off of Alma, right before you get to Bush Tollway. Click for full sized image.

 Hi folks. Bob here. On my  ride to work this morning I noticed some construction off of Alma, right before you pass under the Bush Tollway (heading north into Plano). Stopped and snapped a pic, and confirmed with one of the friendly construction guys that it is indeed a “hike and bike trail”. It is the extention, as it turns out, of the Spring Creek trail (see the Richardson Trail-Way Master Plan), which will eventually hook up to the Cotton Belt trail. 

It’s all coming together, folks. They are apparently working on the new Glenville trail too, which I’m going to go hunting for tonight. Write the city council, and thank them for their support of cycling in Richardson, and give big props to the folks at Parks & Rec who are running this thing. We are going to be the Portland of DFW (minus all the other cool stuff up there, but with the addition of extreme heat in the summers and affordable housing).
