News- City of Lawton News- City of Lawton

LAWTON, Okla._ The city council unanimously approved the first phase of a new citywide walking and biking trail at their regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday night.

This proposal of the Rail to Trails project includes money for road marking for bicycle riders. There are four routes, including one path that connects Cameron University to downtown Lawton and another connecting Greer Park on NW 38th Street to Elmer Thomas Park.

Councilman Keith Jackson says it's been a slow process, but the city is still committed to finishing the work. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation will cover a majority of the cost with a $400,000 grant.
