Bike and Pedestrian Projects Get $55M Boost from Federal Funding
The Regional Transportation Council has approved $55 million in federal funding for the construction of 13 active transportation projects in Dallas-Fort Worth. This funding will be used to improve the region’s bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, connecting people who choose to walk and bike to schools and major hubs of employment. Beyond improving connectivity, the projects will also focus on safety and comfort, reducing traffic congestion and improving air quality, reports Irving Weekly. Some of the projects that will be funded include the construction of “critical trail bridges” in Plano and Addison, as well as the Rowlett Creek Trail in Allen and the Iron Horse Trail in Frisco. The funding will also be used to improve transportation safety for children in disadvantaged communities and to fill gaps in sidewalks around the downtown Garland DART station.
