Wave Hello(ish) to the Standing Wave
Between court hearings and cover stories, we couldn't spare a warm body to attend this morning's Trinity River Corridor Project Committee, the first since December 7. On the agenda: an update on the Standing Wave and Santa Fe Trestle projects, about which a Friend of Unfair Park will occasionally ask for a status update. The briefing prepped for this morning's meeting has plenty of pics of the Standing Wave; they were taken as recently as January 7. It's still expected to open some time in the spring.
You'll also find some construction photos of the Santa Fe Trestle hike-n-bike trail, which, as you'll recall, is intended to "provide bicycle and pedestrian access across the Trinity River to Moore Park, the future Trinity Levee Trails, DART services, Fair Park, and the Dallas Zoo." Last I looked in May, it wasn't due to open till December 2012. Says today's briefing: "Santa Fe Trestle Trail is expected to be complete in Fall 2011." Depending upon weather, but of course.
Update: A Friend of Unfair Park has posted some recently shot footage of the Standing Wave in the comments.
