Introducing the Katy Trail-Arts Loop Connection

At a public meeting Monday at the Nasher Sculpture Center, Councilmember Angela Hunt, with help from Friends of the Katy Trail’s Executive Director Eric Van Steenburg and Mia Birk, principal from Portland-based Alta Planning+Design, introduced the planned Katy Trail-Arts Loop Connection.

This connection improves the bicycle and pedestrian facilities between the Katy Trail and Downtown by creating complete streets that accommodate vehicles, bicycles, pedestrians, mass transit, the disabled, and the aged.
