Capital Metro board OKs new trail for Leander Station

Tuesday, February 27, 2018 by Caleb Pritchard

The Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s board of directors on Monday authorized $390,000 to build a trail connecting Austin Community College’s new San Gabriel Campus in Leander to the MetroRail station just a quarter-mile away. Of the nine bids received for the work, Clearfield Construction came in the lowest. The trail’s price tag includes a bridge crossing over the north fork branch of Brushy Creek. The city of Leander will chip in $92,000 for the trail that will provide access to the new campus for riders on the Red Line, a route that, according to the most recent ridership report, provided 3,200 weekday trips in the month of December.
