Chalk Hill Trail construction to start next year

chalk hill trail

Design and construction plans are underway for the Chalk Hill Trail, a 3.7-mile hike-and-bike trail that will traverse Oak Cliff and West Dallas.

That work is expected to be complete in about a year, and if so, construction could be in in the fall of 2017. That means we could be using the trail, which starts near Wright and Hampton and ends near Chalk Hill Road and West Davis, about two years from now.

Dallas City Council next week is expected to approve a $357,153 cost increase to $9,456,809. About $6 million of that is coming from Dallas County.

    Hopefully you saw our cover story for October – all about trail expansion plans complete with a full city trail map. Hope this helps!

    Connecting existing trails should be high priority. It would be nice to include a map with this article with both the planned and existing indicated.

    Wright and Hampton would mean that it follows the DART tracks to Westmoreland Station, is that true? I thought the trail started at Westmoreland.

    This is nice to see but would love if the focus would turn to connecting the existing trails instead of creating new segmented trails.
