More trail construction in Richardson

Here’s another story I did last night for Bike Friendly Richardson, about some additional bike trail construction currently underway.

It’s too bad there aren’t any projects planned for the southwestern part of town, but I don’t think there are really any great places to put them. That part of town is very easy to navigate on side streets anyway, so a trail really isn’t needed. However, if you look a the lower left side of the Trail Guide, you’ll see a planned section of the Cottonwood trail, that has two small completed sections. This little section is weird looking — appears like its supposed to cross Coit Rd? Are the areas currently green on the map supposed to connect to anything? It looks like they might. Need to see what Dallas is doing on the other sides of those roads.
