Katy Trail 1.0

Cambrick Street meets the Katy Trail about halfway between David's Way at Knox and Snyder's Union, our largest plaza on the Trail. More specifically you can find it north of Fitzhugh and south of Blackburn streets. For those that participate in the Katy 5K, it is the entrance that takes the route off the streets and on to the Katy Trail so expect a warmer welcome to the Katy Trail when you participate this year! (More on our 20th Anniversary Katy 5K coming soon!)

This project has been part of our master plan for quite some time and we are thrilled to be able to turn this long-term goal into reality. The timeline on this project is 90 days making the completion date sometime in late April. As always, safety is on the forefront and we will be taking precautions to ensure Katy Trail users experience as little disruption as possible. The Katy Trail will remain open in this section during construction.

A short and simple project, but looks like it will make a world of a difference.

This was posted in the Uptown thread, but it's also relevant to this thread:
The Dallas City Council agreed Wednesday to sell a Routh Street dead-end to the Katy Trail Ice House for almost a quarter of a million dollars — over the objections of the council member who represents that part of town.

The Ice House agreed to pay the city $225,358 for the small stretch of Routh that runs into the trail off Woodrow Avenue, where the red Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad car's parked. The zoning consultants from Dallas firm Masterplan, representing the popular hangout's ownership, said the Ice House wants to merge the two pieces of properties it owns along the trail that are divided by the dead-end. Dallas Cothrum, Masterplan's CEO, said the Ice House needs to expand its kitchen.

I have high expectations for this plot of land. This is a decent sized lot, connected to a high-energy area that could potentially attract a lot of foot traffic to the area (which is rare in Dallas). I really hope they don't screw this up.
