Latest on Lighting

There’s been a delay in completing the lighting on the Katy Trail. The final two meters – one at Travis Street and the other at Tracy Street – have not been installed by Oncor yet. Until they are, the lighting installer cannot test the lights on the northernmost mile of the Trail to see if they work.

When we last spoke with Oncor three weeks ago, they said the meters would be installed “soon.” Not sure what the definition of “soon” is, though. Once the meters are in, the contractor will test the lights, make any adjustments, complete his final “to-do list” and the lights will be fully operational. We’re still hopeful that the lighting will be working in the next few weeks.

So the lights are now working from the southern end of the trail all the way up to Fitzhugh? I haven't noticed that they are on. Anxiously waiting for this much needed improvement.

Next few weeks? Hopeful? That's terrible news! Did they at least have a good excuse?? Ugh.

At the Best Friend event last Fall, it was stated that the lights would be installed and working by March 1!!! Nine months later...........

The lights are only working on the south end from the AAC to Reverchon Park, and only in the evenings.

If this was a contract being managed by the Friends of the Katy Trail, it would be done. Unfortunately, it's a City contract ...
