the Austin City Coun­cil in March voted to pay $264,000 to de­sign, ex­e­cute and in­stall pub­lic art on the $21.7 mil­lion board­walk trail. Jean Gra­ham, who is man­ag­ing the pub­lic art part of the project for the city, said the other artists are still work­ing on their pro- pos­als.

The project — which be­gins east of Congress Av­enue and goes to In­ter­na­tional Shores Park along South Lakeshore Boule­vard east of In­ter­state 35 — in­cludes both low con­crete bridges over the water and, in a few sec­tions, on-land trail. Vot­ers in 2010 ap­proved $14.4 mil­lion for the project as part of a $90 mil­lion trans­porta­tion bond is­sue.

The bal­ance of the money for the project is coming from the Trail Foun­da­tion, which do­nated $3 mil­lion, and from other city funds.
