 Hidalgo County Precinct 2 Commissioner Eduardo “Eddie” Cantu hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for the Hidalgo County Precinct 2 Hike & Bike Trail Tunnel that concludes the final portion of Phase 1 Hike and Bike Trail.

  

Dozens of elected officials, partners and collaborators, including members of the community, showed up in support of a communal event that will set the standard for safety and healthy living.

 

“We’re proud of how unique, and how safe this project is,” said Cantu.  “It’s the most well-lit and safest exercise trail away from traffic.”

 

Cantu designed the Hike and Bike Trail with tunnels at major roadways for enhanced safety, which is a concept he first proposed while serving on the Pharr City Commission for the Tierra del Sol golf course.

 

The state of the art tunnel will include lighting and surveillance cameras.  In addition, emergency calls stations will be in close proximity to the tunnels.   

 

 “The City of Pharr is excited to work in partnership with the county and surrounding cities to improve the quality life of constituents in the safest manner possible,” said Pharr Mayor Ambrosio Hernandez, M.D.


The trail begins on San Antonio Ave. in San Juan and will cross under Veterans Blvd. when the tunnel is complete for a total of 2.4 miles. Veterans Blvd. is the boundary between San Juan and Pharr.
