Glenville Trail construction
Tonight while I was out running some errands I hunted down the construction being done on the Glenville Trail, in Richardson.
As you can see on the Richardson Trail Guide, this trail will follow Glenville Rd from Woodhaven Grove Park, down on Spring Valley Rd, and go north. A branch will take you behind Mark Twain Elementary School over to Huffines Park, while the main trail continues north, with a loop that connects to the Duck Creek Trail, crossing Arapaho, and ultimately connecting with the DART trail that follows the light rail line up to Galatyn Park.
From what I can tell, the area I’ve circled in red is the part under construction right now. There is also some construction at the bridge on Arapaho, just west of Plano Rd. (I’ve put a red dot there), which I think is probably part of the trail – I guess they are taking it under the bridge there?
This trail will give people down in south east Richardson really good access to the trail system. They’ll able to ride to the light rail stations, Galatyn Park, the Spring Creek Nature area, well — everything. Super super cool.
