State Farm Campus – Plano Road, just south of the PGB Tollway

From last week’s city newsletter:

The City Council on Monday approved a resolution that advances the development of a trail system near the future State Farm campus and surrounding area. The resolution authorizes BCS West Land Investments to design and construct the trail along Routh Creek Parkway from Renner Road to the nearby DART rail station.

The City has obtained a Regional Toll Revenue grant to fund approximately 80 percent of the trail. Once complete, the trail will tie in to the City’s Central Trail, which will eventually run from north to south across the entire City.

    There is a lot of retail just over the frontage roads to PGB on the other side of the DART rail that could see some benefit from bicycle access, some of it already has bike parking in a secure location that is dreadfully under-used because of poor bike access.
