New Braunfels City Council approved an agreement with San Antonio-based civil engineering firm Bain Medina Bain, Inc. during the June 14 council meeting for the final design of a portion of the Dry Comal Creek Hike and Bike Trail.

The agreement allows for an expenditure of up to $375,000 and was recommended by the New Braunfels Economic Development Corporation.

Bain Medina Bain will complete plans, specifications and estimates for a 1-mile portion of the trail that will begin at Walnut Avenue and end at Elizabeth Street. The trail will be the first section of the proposed Dry Comal Creek Greenway to be constructed. Read more at Community Impact Newspaper New Braunfels.
