More trails will soon be a part of the Southlake landscape. At the July 20th meeting, the Southlake City Council approved monies for the construction of Dove Trail in the amount of $225,249.
The trail will run on the north side of Dove road, from Ridgecrest to Carroll Avenue. Construction began in May 2010 with the installation of the pedestrian bridge just east of Ridgecrest. Tree removal and utility relocation were completed in early July. Concrete installation is the next step required for completion. The City will work with Manning Concrete and will maximize taxpayer dollars by utilizing an interlocal agreement with the City of Grapevine. The total cost of the project is projected to be $426,031 with completion scheduled for mid-fall.
The monies come from the city’s capital improvement program. “This trail is an important addition to the City’s pathways system,” said Community Services Director Chris Tribble. More than 3500 linear feet of trail will be added providing for better and safer connectivity between Liberty Park and Carroll Middle School. We are looking forward to seeing the end result.”
