Mayor Ron Jensen was recognized at the North Central Texas Council of Governments for collaborating with the Regional Transportation Council (RTC) to secure $9.8 million in federal funding for the final link of the Dallas Regional Veloweb Trail. Mayor Jensen was honored along with Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price, Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams, Irving Mayor Rick Stopfer and Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings.

The final link of the trail will extend from the Trinity Railway Express CentrePort/DFW Airport Station in Fort Worth eastward to the Mike Lewis Trail in Grand Prairie.

The RTC partnered with the cities of Fort Worth, Arlington, Grand Prairie, Irving and Dallas to approve funding to complete the regional trail through the five cities. Once complete, the regional trail will extend 53 miles from downtown Fort Worth to downtown Dallas and connect with an extensive network of trails in each city. All sections of the trail are anticipated to be complete in 2023.
