Heights Hike and Bike Trail: Still Just Around the Corner

HEIGHTS HIKE AND BIKE TRAIL: STILL JUST AROUND THE CORNER We have a low bidder for a portion of the proposed rails-to-trails project along the old Missouri, Kansas, Texas Southern Pacific railroad line that cuts across the lower Heights — from 7th St. at Shepherd — to Spring St. and Houston Ave. in the First Ward. TxDOT expects construction of the segment to begin in September. [Home in the Heights, via Swamplot Inbox]
