Griggs proposes $6-million Trinity River trail

If voters approve a city bond package in November, there could be a trail on the Oak Cliff side of the Trinity River by 2014.

City Council members Scott Griggs of Oak Cliff and Angela Hunt of East Dallas are proposing a $6.4-million road in the Trinity River basin, which would serve as a hike-and-bike trail.

The 16-foot wide road eventually would connect with the Katy Trail and the Santa Fe Trestle Trail, according to Rudy Bush at the DMN.

The road would be paid for through a $600-million bond package the city is proposing. It goes to voters in the Nov. 6 election.
