The City of Georgetown was awarded a $200,000 trail grant from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in early June.
This grant will help fund a nearly half-mile concrete trail expansion from San Gabriel Park along the San Gabriel River to the Katy Crossing subdivision. The project will also include bridges, fencing, signage and a drinking fountain.
Design of the trail will coincide with Phase 2 of San Gabriel Park improvements, which is underway. Construction is expected to start in spring 2018.
The grant is a part of a $3.46 million grant program to help enhance 22 motorized and non-motorized recreational trail-related projects throughout the state, according to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
