BFR In The Group

Today was a great day for my city. Richardson had a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to welcome cyclists to the newest addition to our Bicycle Master Plan – Central Trail South.

Although not entirely complete, this trail will eventually provide a much needed extension to the existing Central Trail North. Scheduled to be finished within the next few weeks, the Central Trail will be a complete route that reaches from the northern end of the city limits to the southern end. Eventually, it will connect to other trails which will provide access into downtown Dallas.

Along with the many city officials, government partners and city staff, local bike advocacy group, Bike Friendly Richardson, was there to participate in the ceremony.

Here are a few pics. Click here to see the entire set.

They are opening up a new trail in my town. It’s a much needed extension of an existing trail, providing some great connections between our local DART rail train stations and neighborhoods. The City of Richardson and Dallas County are hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open the trail this June.

Here are the details:
Date: Monday, June 2. 2014
Time: 4:00 p.m.
Location: Spring Valley DART Station/Central Trail – Spring Valley Road at Lingco Drive

Let’s try to get as many cyclists to this ceremony as possible, and show our appreciation for these connections.

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.
