The multi-use path along Harvey Mitchell Parkway (FM 2818) will continue southwest from Welsh Avenue to Southwest Parkway through Southwest Park. A portion of the path will be constructed by the Campus Village development at the corner of Harvey Mitchell Parkway (FM 2818) and Wellborn Road (FM 2154) and will run through their property which will begin immediately west of the A&M Consolidated High School property line and end at Southwest Park.

One million dollars was allocated through the November 2008 Bond for the implementation of projects identified by the Hike and Bike Task Force and adopted by City Council on November 23, 2004. Rollout for these funds is slotted from FY09 – FY15.
A high priority trail project identified by the Hike and Bike Task Force in 2004 that has not been completed included Bee Creek Trail West North. This corridor will provide connectivity to key destinations including A&M Consolidated High School, Bee Creek Park and commercial property such as Wal-mart (crossing at Longmire).
The first phase of this project included construction of the path from Texas Avenue to Welsh Avenue and was delivered under budget creating an opportunity to continue the path to Southwest Parkway. Parkland dedication funds from Zone 6 will be used for the proposed improvements in Southwest Park.
