Former railroad bed near Vickery Meadow will be used to build phase 4

Construction on the SoPAC trail, also known as the Katy Trail extension, continues beginning this week as crews embark on phase 4, which extends through the Vickery Meadow, Fair Oaks and northern areas of Lake Highlands. This phase utilizes an old railroad bed that runs south of the Target at the Skillman and Abrams intersection.

This phase of the project will connect the existing concrete trails in the vicinity of White Rock lake near Northwest Highway to Greenville avenue near Harry Moss and Royal Oaks Country Club.

To see a full explanation of the plan for trails connecting to White Rock Lake, read our recent trail guide.

According to a letter from project manager Tushar Solanki, “duration of construction activities for the entire project is expected to be approximately 20 months.”
