This project will provide additional trails to the citywide system for walking, bicycling and running. The proposed expansion includes: trails connecting Lake Hefner to the North Canadian River (The I-44 West Trail), connections from Lake Overholser to the North Canadian Central Greenway (West River/Lake Overholser Trail), a loop trail around Lake Stanley Draper and connection from the Grand Boulevard Trail to the Earlywine Trail (Lake Draper Trail and Airport Trail). Expanding the trail system encourages an active culture while improving the quality of life in Oklahoma City.
This project follows the recommendation of the Oklahoma City Trails Master Plan. The current budget provides for construction of approximately 32 miles of new trails. Land acquisition for certain trails could impact timing or construction phasing.
The project will be completed in two phases to include:
The first phase is scheduled to begin early in the program. The second and third phases are scheduled to begin during the first and middle part of the program.
