WESLACO – Hidalgo County Precinct 1 Commissioner David L. Fuentes announced that work has begun on the Precinct 1 Hike & Bike Trail, one portion of a countywide system that will eventually link several Hidalgo County communities. His staff is also offering to give the media a tour of the trail.

“I am excited to bring our Precinct 1 and Hidalgo County communities together as we celebrate the significant groundbreaking of this project which is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for our residents,” said Fuentes. “This has been a long-term project, and we are thrilled to see it coming to fruition. I want to especially thank all our community partners who have been working in unity to make this possible. My staff is happy to offer the media a tour of the project.” The trail project, which is funded by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), is a proposed 16-mile multi-use trail that will connect Weslaco to San Juan. The trail will also link to the existing Precinct 2 trails, creating a regional network of active transportation and recreation opportunities. Precinct 1 has allocated $5 million for the creation of the Pct.1 Hike and Bike Trails. In addition, Judge Richard F. Cortez has allocated $1 million to assist in the creation of these trails.

The Hike & Bike Trail aims to offer a secure and easy means of transportation between Weslaco, Donna, Alamo, and San Juan, while also connecting to the current trails in Precinct 2. This trail will provide a range of recreational activities for both residents and visitors, including walking, jogging, biking, birdwatching, and enjoying nature. Its presence is expected to improve the well-being of the community, both physically and mentally, and also bring in tourism and boost local economic growth.
