Linear Park 
This project pertains to the design and construction of a nature park, that will include walking trails, along Cowhorn Creek, just South of the Convention Center.

Construction Update
through September 2017
    
This project began in April 2017, and crews have worked to install sidewalks along Kennedy Lane and Cowhorn Creek Road.  Crews have completed asphalt work on the walking trail portion along the creek.  They have also started work installing the traffic signal poles for the intersections of Cowhorn Creek Rd/Galleria Oaks Dr and Cowhorn Creek Rd/Kennedy Lane.  The next work expected to be complete is ADA ramps and sidewalk installation, weather permitting.  Once complete, crews will begin work on solar lighting for the walking trail.
