From Dallas Morning News…
“Every great establishment deserves an impressive “front door,” and the 50-mile circuit of trails being constructed throughout Dallas will soon get one with The Loop Plaza.
Located on Houston Street near the American Airlines Center, the Plaza is a well-planned addition to The Loop, and it will help make Dallas a more pedestrian-friendly city.”
The first of its kind for the city, The Loop Dallas will connect the existing and well-loved Hi Line and Katy Trails. Katy Trail is currently Dallas’s most heavily used trail and the ever-growing desire to have an interconnected trail system from residents and visitors alike has made this a prime connection opportunity.
The Loop will consist of a pedestrian and bike bridge continuing the Katy Trail along with adding a plaza beneath for a gather and rest space and the connection of the Hi Line Trail. The new connection will not only add a passage from one trail to the next – but it will also create a unique gathering space and destination for trail users, Victory Park and Dallas Design District patrons to enjoy. The tiered plaza and bridge will be completely accessed through pedestrian and bike mobilization and can be viewed from the street at the intersection of North Houston Street and Victory Avenue West. At completion, the trailhead will bring forth an opportunity for future equitable trailheads and an interconnected trail loop system across Dallas.
