The Urban Trails program is working to connect Austin’s trails network to the city of Manor, located east of Austin. Recommended in the City’s 2014 Urban Trails Plan, the Austin to Manor Trail will create an additional route for commuters between both cities.
The Austin to Manor Trail includes two sections:
Section 1: Austin to Manor (Daffan Lane to Lindell Lane): Section completed; opened in Fall 2014
Section 2: Austin to Manor (Lindell Lane to Ben e Fischer Park): Currently an active project in the design phase
Austin to Manor: Daffan Lane to Lindell Lane
This section of the trail is complete and opened to the public in Fall of 2014. It connects from Daffan Lane and the Southern Walnut Creek Trail to Lindell Lane. This section is 2.5 miles long and a ten-foot wide concrete path.
Austin to Manor: Lindell Lane to Ben E Fisher Park
This section of the Austin to Manor Trail is being developed through the Local Mobility Program of the 2016 Mobility Bond. The Mobility Bond was approved by voters in November 2016. It dedicates $26 million for urban trails with a transportation and mobility purpose.
This project will connect to the existing section of the Austin to Manor trail to create a complete connection from Manor, Texas to Austin. Austin to Manor connects to Austin’s larger trail network and increases trails access to southeast Austin. This section will be 2.9 miles long and will include a 12-foot wide concrete path.
