Rep. Cuellar joins Laredo City Councilman Charlie San Miguel and former Councilman Gene Belmares and other state and local officials for the ribbon cutting of the Manadas Hike and Bike Trail.
LAREDO, TEXAS (Office of Henry Cuellar) – Congressman Henry Cuellar joined Laredo Mayor Raul Salinas, District VI Council Member Charlie San Miguel, City Manager Carlos Villarreal, and officials from the Texas Department of Transportation to officially inaugurate the Manadas Creek Hike and Bike Trail at North Central Park.
The new trail will expand the park area for the benefit of Laredo residents while providing expanded green spaces for public use. The total cost of the project was $850,000, including a $300,000 federal earmark secured by Congressman Cuellar in 2010.
“Today’s grand opening of the Manadas Creek Hike and Bike Trail is a major accomplishment for the citizens of Laredo,” said Congressman Cuellar. “In 2010, I worked to secure this $300,000 federal earmark for the City of Laredo to design and construct the Manadas Creek Hike and Bike Trail. The new trail adds more green spaces and walking areas for Laredo residents, while still preserving the character of Manadas Creek and protecting our local environment. I would like to congratulate the City for successfully completing this project.”
The new extension will provide additional pathways to access to the shopping centers, grocery store, hospital, restaurants.
