Ellis County Regional Trail Corridor Study  
   (Midlothian to Waxahachie)


Project Description:  The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), in partnership with the cities of Midlothian and Waxahachie, Ellis County, and the University of Texas at Arlington worked together to study alignment options and the feasibility of constructing an eleven mile regional shared-use path in Ellis County linking the cities of Midlothian and Waxahachie.  The planned path will provide safe, alternative modes of transportation, improve air quality, spur economic development, encourage physical activity and promote connectivity between the two cities.  Researchers examined existing natural and human features to generate alternative trail system routings.  Potential spurs to nearby destinations were also explored.

Ellis County Regional Trail Corridor Study (July 2015)

The final draft of the corridor for a proposed regional shared-use path that will connect the cities of Midlothian and Waxahachie is now available.  The City of Waxahachie's Parks Board adopted the plan on March 5, 2015 and the City of Midlothian's Parks Board adopted the plan on April 13, 2015.
