Representative Hubert Vo Announces $1.6M Grant for Hike and Bike Trails

(Houston) State Representative Hubert Vo is pleased to announce that The Texas Transportation Commission has approved $1.6 million in funding for hike and bike trails which will built in the International Management District.

Representative Vo, who authored legislation which created the District in 2007 states:

“…I am very happy that we’re finally able to bring additional resources into the area. These improvements will help to enhance the overall quality of life in Alief and will benefit both residents and business owners. This is exactly why I began working with local business leaders in 1999 and later fought in the legislature to form the International District. This hike and bike trail will be a wonderful compliment to the many other improvements already planned by the District”.
