I note there is a "groundbreaking" ceremony for the Wirtz Road Bike Trail on Wednesday, October 28, 2015. This ceremony is taking place at 9:30 a.m. at the Flowood Nature Park next to Winner's Circle Park. I remember hearing rumors two years ago the City of Flowood planned to put a bike trail connecting the Nature Park to the trails on Hugh Ward.
Does anyone know anything more about the trail, i.e., will it be connected to the road a la Old Fannin, or separated like the rest of Flowood's bike trails? Also, does this mean there are no plans to expand Wirtz Road to four lane?
