Work to build a major Cross-City Trail connector along Independence Boulevard crossing Shipyard Blvd. is now complete.
Construction on 2,300 feet of a 8 to 10-foot wide asphalt multi-use path running along Independence Blvd. between Ashton and Converse drives began in January.
Pedestrian signal improvements were also added to the existing signal at Independence and Shipyard boulevards. Along with making connections to parts of the existing trail, the improvements make it safer for users of the trail to cross the busy Independence/Shipyard intersection.
