A construction company has been chosen for the Lake Worth Trail project.

The Fort Worth City Council voted unanimously on Aug. 16 to choose Phoenix-based Haydon Building Corp to lead construction on the first phase of the Lake Worth Trail. The company will receive about $5.4 million from the city.

The approximately 5.6-mile trail will begin at Trinity Trail near Anahuac Avenue, then head northwest around Lake Worth, passing Marion Sansom Park and ending at Arrow S Park. Park and Recreation Assistant Director David Creek said construction may begin in October, with some construction and design happening simultaneously.

In addition, the city council voted to pay Fort Worth engineering consultant Freese and Nichols, Inc., an additional $200,000 to continue design and engineering services for the trail. With the increased amount, Freese and Nichols will earn about $1.3 million from the city. The company has been working on the project since 2008.

The total cost of project is about $7.3 million, and the city estimates that the cost to maintain the trail will be $78,700 annually.

Lake Worth is located in northwest Fort Worth, north of the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base.
