Suburban Assault

They’re Extending The Trails In My City – Richardson, Texas

with one comment

My city, Richardson, Texas, is adding an extension to an existing trail which runs along our transit rail system. It’s all part of our biking and pedestrian master plan. Once finished, it will run through the center of the city limits, connecting three of our four rail stations. Eventually, it will connect to the trail systems of neighboring cities and provide an off-road connection for cyclists and pedestrians.

Here are some pics of the current construction:

Here, you can see the start of the extension. The transit tracks are to the right.

As you can see, the city is making efforts to save the existing trees along the tracks.

Here you can see how the trail will coexist with the rail system.

They’ve had to make some adjustments to work around existing infrastructure.

This will be a nice addition to our city.

  1. Hey, thanks for the pic of where a bike could park at walmart. I tried to park my bike at my local suburban walmart and ended up locking it at a bench in front of the store where mostly employee smokers hang out. Being Walmart, I figured it would be safe there since most customers probably never bike (really odd, because their bike accessory section at this store is incredible and cheap, second to none in my opinion). From now on if I must go there, I will consider locking my bike at the cart corral, I never even would have thought of this. Thanks for sharing!
