Re: Dallas Trail System

Thanks for the response. I rode the SOPAC from Fisher to Park Lane (where it abruptly stops)so they are not far from Greenville.

Re: Dallas Trail System

Does anyone know if the new Ridgewood trail has a trail connection to White Rock (from where it turns north close to Fisher Road)? If not, what is the best way to get to White Rock and are their plans to connect the trails?

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

Sorry if this has been asked and answered; I saw reference to bids due in a month. Has Amazon indicated a time frame for decision and a desired "move in" date. That would also provide insight as to whether they are considering building a campus or cobbling together adjacent buildings as it...

citibike.PNG This is the Citibike program in New York. It cost me about $150 for a year membership. I get unlimited usage of bikes in 45 minute increments (ie if I want to ride longer I need to check it in to a station and then check it back out to restart the timer). If I keep it (without a period...

Re: Dallas Trail System

The completion of this sidewalk under 35 is crucial. It opens up a nice circle ride. Down the Katy, under 35 (on this new sidewalk), over the pedestrian bridge, northwest on the Trinity Skyline trail, over the Sylvan Bridge to the Trinity Strand Trail, up Hi Line to AA center and back to the Katy. I...

Alexan Skyline Goat Hill

Why has it taken so long to finish this building? The building itself is an eyesore, only made worse by the trash in the trees and construction fence that has been up for a very long time. Seriously, Trammell Crow how long can it possibly take to build a sidewalk. You have shown no respect for aesth...

Re: Victory Park: The Katy (310 FT / 30 ST)

It also blocks much of the southern view from the trail, including the plateau which was the original settlement site of the La Reunion settlers https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_R%C3%A9union_(Dallas)

Re: Dallas Trail System

Does anyone have an update on the Mockingbird pedestrian bridge? It seems to be making slow progress. Is it still on track to be completed by this summer?

Re: Austin - Gondola Cable Car

But there is a river which greatly limits car access and a large, growing, and dense population on one side and a city center on the other. I suspect that building and maintaining a gondola on a flat elevation would be less costly than for a gondola going up a hill (to what- as you describe it - is ...
