The Green Tee Terrace Trail received a new 250-foot pedestrian bridge today, marking the first pedestrian trail crossing to connect Harris and Brazoria counties. The bridge is located just northwest of the Green Tee Terrace subdivision and crosses over Clear Creek.
Once completed, the Green Tee Terrace Trail will be an added section to the Clear Creek Trail Master Plan.
The Clear Creek Trail will span 21 miles, stretching along Clear Creek from Shadow Creek Park to Dixie Farm Road.
The City of Pearland and the Pearland Economic Development Corporation, along with others, are working diligently to build connectivity into the City's trails to provide residents with pedestrian and bicycle access to municipal and county greenspaces, parks, and public facilities.

Green Tee Terrace Trail, Dec. 21 - The Green Tee Terrace Trail Project will see the construction of an approximately 8,000-feet-long, 10-feet-wide hike and bike trail along the Clear Creek Corridor Range from Broadway through Province Village to Clear Creek then over the creek to Hughes Road. The project also includes benches, signage, trash receptacles and shade structures.
More Bids for construction were recently awarded for two major trail projects during the Dec. 17 Council Meeting. The proposed construction projects are especially notable, due to their funding coming from federal Transportation Enhancement (TE) funds and Federal Surface Transportation Program, Metropolitan Mobility Off-System (STP-MM) funds, with both monetary sources being made possible through Houston Galveston Area Council's (H-GAC) involvement.
The first project, the Green Tee Terrace Trail Project, will see the construction of an approximately 8,000-feet-long, 10-feet-wide hike and bike trail along the Clear Creek Corridor from Broadway through Province Village to Clear Creek then over the creek to Hughes Road. The project also includes benches, signage, trash receptacles and shade structures. In November 2017, while this project was being planned, an agreement was executed with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) which reimburses the City for all approved construction costs up to 80% of the approved construction amount. The agreement only requires 20% matching funds from the City, effectively allowing the City to construct the trail at a significantly lower local direct cost.
