Had to stop by the UP permit office at their City Hall Annex on Worcola this afternoon and drove past where they are pouring pavement for Katy Trail Phase III from Worcola to Greenville Avenue alongside the DART Blue Line ROW and the UP Annex building
At the same time, DART was replacing their old bike lockers at Mockingbird Station with these hutch things
The new bike lockers were featured at this past weekends Ross Avenue 72 Hour Challenge and are meant to replace the original bike boxes DART initially installed at several stations throughout it’s light rail network. Below was swiped from http://www.dart.org/riding/bike.asp
New Bike Lids To Replace Bike Lockers In Calendar Year 2011
DART has received a federal grant to replace aged and worn bike lockers with a new environmentally friendly state of the art bike lids. Currently, cyclists can try out the new bike lid located at Downtown Plano, Walnut Hill, and Akard stations.
The 142 new bike lids meet homeland security requirements, are homeless and vandal resistant, and do not overheat and melt plastic bike components.
Use of the new bike lids will be on a first come, first served bases. Cyclists will be required to provide their own padlock used to secure the bike lid. DART may add additional bike lids at a later date where demand exceeds supply. Please keep in-mind that overnight bicycle storage and/or locking of unused lids will not be allowed.
DART is in the process of removing damaged bike lockers now. All bicycles stored in damaged lockers that are removed will be logged into DART’s lost-and-found. At a future date DART will notify cyclists that all bicycles stored in undamaged lockers will need to be removed in preparation for this project.
Because of these changes,
DART IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING RESERVATIONS OR MAINTAINING WAITING LISTS FOR BIKE LOCKERS RENTALS.
For further information about DART’s existing bike lockers or new bike lids, please contact John Quinn, Project Manager, at 214-749-2845.
