New Viscount Hike and Bike Trail Open to Community
The Cielo Vista Neighborhood finally receives a trail that will allow the community access to a beautiful walking, biking and hiking trail.
The corridor will improve connectivity among several existing neighborhoods, Ponder Park, Eastside Transfer Terminal, El Paso Community College, and commercial districts near Viscount and Hawkins. The project consists of a 14-foot pedestrian and bicycle path along portions of the corridor with shade trees, vegetation and other amenities. This project is has an approximate budget of $955,000, and is funded by TXDoT and the City. This Hike and Bike project supports the development of a pedestrian and bicycle corridor along Viscount Boulevard between Montwood Drive and Ponder Park.
A ceremonial ground breaking event will take place on Thursday, March 24, 2016 at the Multipurpose Center parking lot at 9031 Viscount beginning at 4 p.m.
