TPWD Announces New Rec Trails Projects

Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission has recently announced $5.25 million in federal grants will be used for 38 recreational trail projects (chosen from the 82 proposals submitted) across the state.

Riding a trailBikeTexas is proud to have been part of this process. In a collaborative effort with national bike and trail organizations and bike organizations from other states, BikeTexas worked with members of our congressional delegation to keep Rec Trails funding in the federal transportation bill in 2012. BikeTexas then worked with leaders at TxDOT and TPWD to save Rec Trails funding from being transferred to other uses. As a result of our work to preserve Rec Trails, funds were available for this round of grants.

Funding from Rec Trails must be divided between motorized and non-motorized trail projects. The new non-motorized trail projects will be around the state. For more details about these projects, see TPWD’s press release here.
