TACOMA — Staff from the city of Tacoma are working on the final design for Prairie Line Trail connecting Pacific Avenue to the waterfront, and will hold an open house about the project from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday in the Tacoma Art Museum at 1701 Pacific Ave.

Part of a former rail corridor is being converted into a pedestrian/bicycle trail and linear park through downtown. Conceptual ideas generated last year have been used to create engineering designs for the Pacific Avenue-Waterfront segment.

Engineering Manager Chris Larson said the open house will let people see the latest design.

If Burlington Northern Santa Fe donates the land, the city plans to complete the trail section next summer. It will connect with the segment through the University of Washington Tacoma campus that is under construction. After the waterfront segment is done, two thirds of the trail will be built.

Information is available at or by contacting Project Manager Chris Storey at (253) 573-2484 or
