Rail Trail/288 bridge designs proposed

Denton Parks and Rec hosts input meeting for cyclist/pedestrian bridge over Loop 288

At last Monday’s public input meeting, Denton Parks and Rec explained a general plan for the Rail Trail/288 bridge and solicited input from the twenty or so attendees.

  • bridge will be box-truss design, corten “weathering” steel
  • long ramps of gentle 3 degree incline, just like the train tracks
  • pedestrian stairs leading from bridge to Loop 288 sidewalk
  • rail trail is 8′ wide, bridge will be 10′ wide and 700′ long
  • bridge building will take 4-6 months, done by end of 2011
  • rail trail to be complete at same time as DCTA A-train line (aka, next few months)
  • city council already approved $1,165,000 funding from Hwy 121 toll revenue
  • send comments and suggestions to robert.tickner@cityofdenton.com
