This summer has seen several construction projects on the Katy Trail. We are extremely excited that let you all know that our irrigation system got a complete overhaul making our new system more green! The Smartlink system will also alert us when problems arise making our repair time shorter which means less water wasted. Our irrigation has needed an upgrade for several years and thanks to our donors and members, we were finally able to afford to replace our outdated system.
Construction at the Hillwood site south of Snyder’s Union
presses on. The new headquarters for the Perot company located near Turtle
Creek and Katy Trail will not just be a world class campus for Hillwood employees,
but they have worked in a new plaza on the trail to their plans. Currently a temporary
construction fence is in place overlapping on the hard path in that area so
please use caution in that area.
Rendering for new plaza
Friends of the Katy Trail has also been hard at work designing new safety and way finding signs. The signs will be installed in August in three locations along the Katy Trail: Knox intersection, Snyder's Union and the southern trail head Downtown.
