To Manor! By bike! Soon!

Friday, April 7, 2023 by Elizabeth Pagano

Austin’s bike infrastructure will continue to expand with the upcoming start of construction on the Austin to Manor Trail this month. The trail, which is about 3 miles long, will consist of a 12-foot-wide path that (as you might have guessed) connects Austin’s trail network to Manor following Capital Metro railroad tracks, which makes for a nice, flat path through the Blackland Prairie. Construction is expected to take one year and will, eventually, connect to the proposed Gilleland Greenway allowing bikes to travel from Ben E. Fisher Metropolitan Park to Northeast Metropolitan Park in Pflugerville.



The urban trail will be funded through a combination of mobility bonds, a CAMPO grant and a Travis County interlocal agreement.
