​​PEARLAND - City Council awarded a nearly $460,000 contract to Excel Paving LLC for the construction of a trail at the John Hargrove Environmental Complex.

The $458,072 trail project will be funded by a Coastal Impact Assistance Program grant that was awarded in 2013. The City of Pearland and Brazoria County entered into an interlocal agreement to fund the project in addition to any environmental stipulations of the grant, officials said.

The trail is part of scheduled improvements at the facility, which include a boardwalk with an overlook, paddleboat-launching areas and other amenities, according to officials.

The boardwalk and paddleboat-launching area portions were included in the original project plans in 2011, but the 2014 Capital Improvements Program identified the trail as a separate project, according to officials.

The remaining additions to the environmental complex are projected to be completed in Fiscal year 2018 pending additional grant money, officials said.

As part of the grant project, Excel Paving will install an eight-foot-wide granite trail with concrete edging, sidewalks, a water fountain, educational signage and nine additional parking spaces at the Stella Roberts Recycle Center. 

The project is ongoing and expected to be completed in February.
