Motorists and pedestrians near the intersection of Arapaho Road and Plano Road may notice an abundance of orange plastic fencing north and south of the intersection, as construction work on the Duck Creek Trail’s extension has begun. The joint project between Richardson and Dallas County will add about two miles of paved, multiuse trail to Richardson’s more than 60 miles of trail, connecting with the Glenville trail in Huffhines Park at Apollo Road and the current Duck Creek Trail terminus at Plano Road just north of Creekside Drive. The new trail will continue northwest to existing trail at the intersection of Collins Boulevard and International Parkway.  

The project is planned to be completed by the end of 2020.
