FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - New bike trails will be added to already-established ones to connect Dallas and Fort Worth.
The North Central Texas Council of Governments plans to use 30 miles of already-established bike trails in Fort Worth, Arlington, Grand Prairie, Irving and Dallas and then connect those routes with 34 additional miles.
The mayors of the five cities have all signed onto the plan pitched by Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price.
The council's Karla Weaver says 10 of the needed miles already have identified funding and a plan for construction.
Cities can start applying for funding from a federal grant program beginning in February.
Weaver says the connected trail could take up to ten years to complete.
