SEPT. 12, 2023 - A new funding agreement with TxDOT has been approved, allowing federal grant funds to help pay for the construction of the north and south segments of Rowlett Trail.
A total of $3.2 million in grant funds will be used for this project. Because of these grant funds, and the diligence of city staff who worked to secure them, the City of Allen only needs to contribute $880,000 to the construction process.
Councilmembers also approved the construction of a trailhead and trail connection for Rowlett Trail in the Molsen Farm property, near Greenville Avenue.
This new trail connection will create a new way to enter Rowlett Trail and is part of Phase 1 of the Molsen Farm project.
