Plans to build trails from Interstate 35 to Arcadia Lake are moving forward, with the city spending $176,300 for the design work.

City officials want to build three miles of trails from the west side of Interstate 35 north of 15th Street, under the interstate and to Spring Creek Park at Arcadia Lake. The Spring Creek Multi-Purpose Trail would be about three miles long.

The proposed trail would start on the west side of the interstate at a wellness park planned by Tapp Development, the company developing the land just north of Walmart Super Center.

“The city has a strong interest in the development of new trails in the community to move people from one area of the community to another area away from our standard street system as much as possible,” said Assistant City Manager Steve Commons.

City council members this week approved the design contract with MKEC Engineering Consultants Inc.
