Local News

WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — The Wichita Falls City Council approved some resolutions from the 4B sales tax corporation board.

Up to $100,000 will be used to improve striping for the city’s bicycle-friendly certification. And, over $756,000 will be spent on new construction on the Circle Trail project.

In 2017, the city was awarded 3 transportation grant projects through the state department of transportation for 3 sections of the trail.

These funds will be used on the final section that will stretch from Barnett Road to Seymour Highway.

“This is the Barnett portion of it. It’s one of the final portions of our trail project. Much needed. Not really a harder piece but it was kind of harder to connect and there’s some difficulties out there. But this being approved by 4B, we’re almost there,” Wichita Falls mayor Stephen Santellana said.

Santellana also said Wichita Falls will continue to upgrade their bicycle markings to make the city safer for cyclists.
