The City of Princeton developed a Trail Gap Analysis map to identify gaps in the trail system (see exhibits linked). The City identified three locations that are a high priority.
Tickey Drive to Brookside Subdivision – This project will connect the Brookside subdivision to Tickey Drive by providing a concrete trail connection from the existing Brookside trail system to the existing sidewalk along Tickey Drive. This connection is anticipated to include a pedestrian bridge.
Forest Park to Tickey Drive – This project will provide a concrete trail connection from the Forest Park Subdivision to the sidewalk along Tickey Drive. This project is critical to connect the north side of Princeton to the south side of Princeton by utilizing an connection beneath the bridge over Tickey Creek along West Princeton Drive (US 380).
Monte Carlo Boulevard Pedestrian Bridge Connection – This project will provide a trail connection from Southard Middle School to Longneck Road (FM 75) along the south side of Monte Carlo Boulevard. This project will increase pedestrian safety for children walking to and from school each day. This project will require a pedestrian bridge.
