MKT Rails to Trails

Stude Park Spur

KUO, working as a sub-consultant to RPS, worked with the City of Houston, the Texas Department of Transportation, and the Houston Parks Board to transform a former rail corridor into a bike trail.

KUO provided topographical survey services for the rails-to-trails corridor, which runs along the north side of White Oak Bayou from the Height Bike Trail to Studemont Road. The engineering firm also provided civil engineering design for the trail itself, as well as H&H analysis, sign layout, and an SW3P plan, among other services for this million-dollar project.

Project challenges included USACE permitting complexities, which led to multiple engineering design iterations to address those permitting challenges. Still, KUO delivered the project on schedule and within our assigned budget.
