ATASCOCITA, Texas – Commissioner Jack Morman is proud to announce the start of construction on phase one of the Atascocita Area Hike & Bike Trail for early November. The $704,000 project will construct a new 8-foot-wide, one-mile long concrete trail along the Harris County Flood Control Channel between West Lake Houston Parkway and Kings Park Way. Construction is expected to be complete in the first quarter of 2019.

“We wanted to make sure this addressed the needs of the community, so we met with a number of neighborhoods, business, and other government entities to help lead us in the right direction,” said Commissioner Morman.

This project is part of an 8-mile-long concept that will provide trail connectivity between neighborhoods and businesses throughout Atascocita.

“I’m very proud to provide this community with a recreational amenity,” said Commissioner Morman. “We’ve had a lot of focus on transportation in recent years, so I think projects like this and our new park will be great for the area.”
