Public Art Project Updates

Cottonwood Creek Trail Bridge
The Cottonwood Creek Trail is the newest addition to Allen's trail network. The trail will be .6 miles long, connecting existing trails to the east and west. It will cross Cottonwood Creek via a bridge and will follow a path leading under US Highway 75.

The Allen Public Arts Committee solicited artists to design and fabricate artistic elements to enhance the interior rails of the bridge. Artists were challenged to create engaging artwork in an unexpected place, creating an aesthetically appealing surprise for those using the trail. The bridge must be completed with a project budget of $100,000 or less. Construction is expected to begin in Spring 2015.
