Townsen Park and Ride Trail Benefits Kingwood Residents

City of Houston residents have long enjoyed the ability to hop on a bike and catch a bus to locations across the city. One day, Kingwood residents may have a similar opportunity.

Precinct 4 is planning a new one-mile hike and bike trail that would connect Kingwood residents to the Townsen Park-n-Ride and the Spring Creek Greenway, which extends more than 13 miles along the greenway.

This grant-funded project will extend south from the parking lot underneath Highway 59 at the San Jacinto River and connect to the Spring Creek Greenway trail, eventually reaching the Townsen Park-n-Ride facility. Kingwood residents will be able to access the trail through the paved bridge across the river and access downtown amenities through the Metro facility at Townsen.

Construction could begin as early as 2021 if the county receives grant funds through TxDOT’s Transportation Enhancement Program.
