The “YMCA connection,” a quarter-mile path between the Santa Fe Trail and what is now the Arboretum Village, is scheduled to be completed by May of next year.
The city is paying $2.45 million, from 2006 and 2012 bond funds, for that project and a 2-mile extension of the SoPac Trail between Mockingbird and Royal. Dallas County is paying for the other half of those $4.9-million projects and is responsible for designing and building them.
Construction on the SoPac Trail extension is expected to begin October 2015 and be completed a year later. When it is complete in a couple of years, the trail eventually will connect to the Katy Trail.
