Tyler Area MPO News: Legacy Trail Proposal

The City of Tyler is applying for a grant through TxDOT’s Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) to extend the current trail system in south Tyler. The proposal is for two new segments. The first segment will extend the current trail on West Grande Boulevard to Old Jacksonville Highway and follow it south to Gresham. The other section would connect to the Old Jacksonville extension and follow Dueling Oaks before going south and connecting to West Cumberland Road. From there pedestrians and bicyclists could follow Cumberland Road to Faulkner Park. The grant would provide the necessary funds required to construct these two proposed trails. Applications are due to TxDOT by May 4th, and the Tyler staff is hard at work completing the application and collecting support letters from the community. Further updates on this potential project will be provided after the response on the application has been received
