Connector trail public hearing set for January 12

The Dallas County Conservation Board will hold a public hearing Jan. 12 on phases 3 and 4 of the RRVT-HTT connector trail project between Perry and Woodward.

The Dallas County Conservation Board will hold a public hearing Tuesday, Jan. 12 on funding for phase 3 and phase 4 of the High Trestle Trail to Raccoon River Valley Trail Connector project.

Phase 3 of the project will add another mile to the westward route from Woodward. The trail from S Avenue to R Avenue is complete, and phase 3 will continue the trail westward one mile to Quinlan Avenue. The estimated cost of phase 3 is $569,000.

Phase 4 of the HTT-RRVT connector project involves building a trail bridge over Beaver Creek near 130th Street east of Perry and paving as far as M Avenue. The estimated cost of phase 4 is $669,300.

Dallas County Conservation Director Mike Wallace brief the Dallas County Conservation Board of Directors on the state of the connector project at the board’s Dec. 8 meeting.

“We got our foot in the door on something significantly here recently,” Wallace told the board, “but it’s not a signed deal yet, but things are looking good at least on one phase of that project that we’ve had discussions on in the past.”

The public hearing will be held Tuesday, Jan. 12 at 5:45 p.m. at Forest Park Museum, 14581 K Ave. in Perry.
