The city of Longview called for a public input meeting on May 4, 2017, in conjunction with completion of the final two phases of the Guthrie Trail. The city is applying to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) for a grant of up to $3 million to complete the trail.
If the grant is approved, it would facilitate a $7.6 million project to connect the phases to Guthrie Trail Phase 1, as well as the Paul G. Boorman and Cargill Long trails. Upon completion, Longview would end up with more than 10 miles of continuous pedestrian and biking trails.
According to Longview Parks and Recreation Director Scott Caron, a route hasn’t yet been set, and the city wants to hear from residents. “The original trail map was developed in 2009, and I’m not sure if anyone along the route has been involved since that initial plan was published,” he told the Longview News Journal.
