The City of Houston is getting some help completing several major hike and bike trail projects, Click2Houston.com reported Aug. 28.
The Parks and Recreation Department has received four Transportation Enhancement Program grants totaling $6,594,406 to go toward finishing the projects.
Three of the four funded projects will connect existing trails, parks, bus and METRO rail stops, and neighborhoods along Brays Bayou. The fourth will tie into an ongoing flood control project on Hunting Bayou.
The estimated total overall project cost is $12.6 million: $6.6 million in Federal funds and a combination of public and private funds of $6 million for the local match.
