In February, the City of Irving approved the 2.4-mile Rock Island Road bike and pedestrian trail between the West Irving DART station and Irby Lane. The $3.65 million project includes a 10-foot-wide trail that will accommodate bicycle and foot traffic, provide a major east-west pedestrian route, and will offer safe and reliable access to light rail service. The project will include lighting along the trail. The North Central Texas Council of Governments was instrumental in securing the funding through the Federal Highway Administration, Texas Department of Transportation and the City of Irving.
The bike and pedestrian trail is part of the larger Fort Worth to Dallas Regional Trail system. Once completed, the trail will connect the cities of Fort Worth, Arlington, Grand Prairie, Irving and Dallas.
Construction is expected to begin on this section in April 2019 and should be completed by spring 2020, weather permitting.
City staff also is working on proposals to complete Irving’s Campion Trail. Roughly 15 miles of the city’s master-planned, 22-mile greenbelt is accessible for public use. In the future, the city plans to fully connect all sections of Campion Trail. View the map of the city’s trail system.
