I'm not that familiar with this trail, so I'm not sure where this 2.3 mile portion is going to be. Also, aside from this Facebook post, I haven't seen anything regarding any more construction on this trail, so I'm not sure how accurate this is.

This has been a thing for 5 or 10 years.... somewhere we've got a thread of thread tangent about it.

You just have to look at the facebook page but they are planning a 2.5 expansion on the opposite side from the current concrete trail within the meanders.

The white line is the current concrete trail. The Yellow line connecting it to Inwood should be done already but I have no confirmation on that. It's 2.25 miles long along existing sidewalk areas and it could have been delayed for any number of issues including land acquisition etc. The green line that runs parallel to the white line on the opposite side of the meanders banks is the supposed expansion along with a segment to the Trinity levee along the last part of Turtle Creek Blvd connecting the trail to the Trinity River trail system. This expansion is on existing right of way so while it may be Phase 3 it could be completed faster than the Inwood station route.

Phase 2 is what they're saying will start construction next year, which I think is a deviation from original plans to connect it to DART's Market Center Station. You'll now be able to take the trail along Harry Hines and maybe wave to a few hookers along the ride.

If the yellow line is the final route, it looks like from Harry Hines it'll turn NE on Medical District Dr in front of Parkland until it meets with DART. From there it follows the transit ROW past Parkland Station until it reaches Inwood. I like this plan much more than the original.
