According to this proposed trail’s pages on Transportation Planroom, “The purpose is to provide a connection to Hot Springs National Park, the Old River Bridge on the Saline River, the Little Rock Central High School Historic Site, and the Arkansas River Trail System that allows for pedestrians and bicyclists to safely enjoy outdoor recreation while providing an economic stimulus to the local and regional economies.”
This project is run by Pulaski, Saline, and Garland counties. Garver Engineering is providing Environmental Assessment services. The Federal Highway Administration and ARDOT are providing oversight on the project.
