Dallas “Knox Strasse” Better Block Project

Dallas “Knox Strasse” Better Block Project


Team Better Block will be unveiling the first physically separated cycle-track in Dallas on Knox Street connecting the Katy Trail to the retail along Knox. This project is being developed in partnership with the city’s Complete Streets program to test the idea of creating a more pedestrian and bike friendly street while introducing innovative road treatments found throughout Europe. The project, dubbed “Knox Strasse” (Strasse is the German word for street) will take place from September 27th – 30th and will include an open air biergarten, street market, parklets and more.  The temporary makeover for the four days will inform a future bond election project to make the street more inviting to all. Come out and be a part of the change and provide feedback on what should be made permanent.
