Members of Phi Lambda Chi fraternity at Texas A&M University-Texarkana are working on a walking bridge at the Bringle Lake Wilderness Trail.

About 10 students recently spent their Saturday working on the bridge at Bringle Lake Park, said Dr. Nancy Jordan, associate provost at A&M-Texarkana.

"The students worked on the muddiest part of the trail and made good progress," Jordan said in a statement. "They finished about a third of the proposed walking bridge.

We hope they'll be able to make more progress on their next work day since they started with the worst part of the trail."

The Bringle Lake Wilderness Trail is the result of several years of planning and collaboration among A&M University-Texarkana, the city of Texarkana, Texas, and

Partnership for the Pathway.

"This wilderness trail will benefit the students, faculty, and staff at A&M-Texarkana as well as the citizens of Bowie County," Jordan said. "A&M-Texarkana embarked on this project as a way to give back to the Texarkana community and thank the city of Texarkana for their support. It serves as a model for future collaborations with our community partners."

The first phase of the wilderness trail project covered about 2.5 miles of upgrades to the existing wilderness trail surface—from the newly built Bringle Lake East Park to the Bringle Lake dam. The second phase of the project completes the almost seven-mile loop of the wilderness trail system.
