AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A more than mile-long boardwalk on Lady Bird Lake in Austin will be opening June 7.

Officials with The Trail Foundation on Thursday announced grand opening plans for the boardwalk on the Ann and Roy Butler hike-and-bike trail.

Construction on the more than $28 million project started in October 2012.

Voters in 2010 approved more than $17 million in bonds to support the project. Private contributions also helped pay for the boardwalk on the south shore of Lady Bird Lake.
