Yesterday, along with the reopening of passenger train service, Denton also got the rail trail back after two years of closure. Parks and Rec says the bike and pedestrian bridge over Loop 288 will be constructed by Spring 2012.
Yup, I called it the Katy. This trail is, after all, part of the historic Missouri-Kansas-Texas railroad line. I think just calling it the Katy will add historical character and an association with the wildly successful Dallas KT and the 237 mile Katy Trail State Park in Missouri. Let’s call it what it is, put up some info on kiosks, and watch people flock to it.
