The Little Texas Sidewalk Project includes approximately one and a half miles of sidewalk and pedestrian improvements along the east side of Little Texas Road and Ruth Avenue from Dale Earnhardt Boulevard to Lane Street. The project also includes improvements to the intersection of Ruth Avenue and Little Texas Road and roadway improvements along Ruth Avenue.
