On Monday, August 8, 2022, there will be partial closures of the SoPac Trail from Tokalon Dr. to Northwest Highway. 
Arbor Masters will be raising trees lines over sidewalks, paved trails, and adjacent mowed turf areas along the trail. There will also be a 3-foot cutback from guard rails along the trail. 
Localized sections of the trail will be closed while work is occurring during the morning and afternoon but will reopen when work is done each day. Dallas Parks & Recreation anticipates this work will take approximately 3 - 6 days.

LTNA continues to be a strong supporter as well as a founding entity of the Friends of the SoPac Trail. Here is an update from the group:
The Friends of the SoPac Trail are excited to introduce the launching of their website: The website will serve to publicize all the work that The Friends are doing in support of the trail as well as providing a vehicle to communicate with all the Friend’s membership. As we strive to be a citizen group in service to the residents of our adjacent neighborhoods and support to our Dallas Park and Recreation Department, we are hopeful that our new website will facilitate this core mission. Please feel free to visit the website, to subscribe to receive future updates, and soon you will be able to donate to the cause from that site. 
The “Friends” as an organization is joining the Dallas Trails Coalition which is supporting hike and bike paths around the city. This group is supported by the Circuit Trail Conservancy, informally known as The Loop. Information on the Conservancy can be found at The Loop.  LTNA SoPac Trail Photos
