The Harris County Toll Road Authority is moving ahead with a plan to connect hiking and bicycling trails in areas near the toll roads.
County commissioners approved the $53 million dollar Tollways to Trailways plan at a session this past week.
The project will connect about 236 miles of hike-and-bike trails in areas around the county's toll roads, including the Beltway.
County Commissioner Rodney Ellis says the project will be funded with surplus revenue from the tollways. He didn't give an estimated target date for completion.
