Townview Students and HNTB Engineers Collaborate on Katy Trail Project
For the fourth year, HNTB engineers have partnered with DISD’s School for the Talented and Gifted at Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Center to design solutions for the firm’s current Dallas infrastructure projects. During the 2014-2015 school year, engineers mentored students as they developed presentations, drawings, renderings and models of the newest Katy Trail segment. The resulting project – Katy Trail Phase VI: Trail and Mockingbird Lane Pedestrian Bridge – introduced high school students to careers in the Architectural, Engineering, and Planning (AEP) industry while also reinforcing academic STEM curriculum.
