The city funded $600,000 for the project as part of the 2017 budget and Perimeter Center Improvement District also contributed $200,000 for the construction of the trail and bridge.

Parks and Recreation Director Brent Walker said construction is expected to begin by the end of this year and be finished in early 2019.
