The missing link in the Razorback Greenway will soon be under construction.
Fayetteville, Rogers and Bentonville have been building trails as part of the nearly $20 million project, which will eventually stretch 36 miles through six communities.
But trail goers may have noticed the missing stretch of trail through Springdale.
"Springdale is really going to be one of the crown jewels of the trail system."
Transportation Study Director John McLarty, with the Northwest Arkansas Regional Planning Commission, said there have been some delays, but construction should be under way this summer.
"There was some extra environmental work and flood studies, and permitting with the Corp of Engineers because so much of it is close to the creek... It's going to be pretty and really spectacular, but it just took a little longer to get all the permits."
The Springdale portion of the Razorback Greenway will run from Lake Fayetteville, alongside Spring Creek, to Lake Springdale and then to Lowell.
McLarty said once you start building trail it goes pretty quickly, so they are still aiming to have the whole system complete by the end of this year.
