KVUE — KVUE's Quita Culpepper gives us the sneak preview of a new attraction on Lady Bird Lake.

This project has been 20 years in the making. It's a new link in the Hike and Bike Trail, and provides a more convenient route for runners and walkers who are currently forced to navigate around the highway.

The Boardwalk also showcases a creek that many Austinites haven't heard of, Harper's Branch Creek. The trail includes more than 13,000 LED lights and 1.3 million pounds of structural steel.

The Boardwalk is set to open to the public on June 7. The budget for the project is $27.8 million.
