Surface and Conditions/Challenges
At this point, Lamar County has obtained two (2) TxDOT TAP and TASA grants that will provide a surfaced trail to the Lamar County West county line from there.
In December, 2017, Phase I TxDOT TAP grant began on construction from the Red River West County line to Bagwell. It entails clearing and grading the corridor, rehabbing all Railroad bridges, installing handrails on bridges, strategically placing safety bollards, and regulatory signage. The project is scheduled to be completed in September 2018.
From Blossom’s West city limit to East city limit has been completed with an all-weather surface. On September 7th, 2018, a Phase I TxDOT TAP grant will begin from Blossom’s East city limit to the East Lamar County line. The project will entail clearing and grading approximately 4.5 miles.
