The concept of placing the Iron Horse Trail in the air is nothing new.

In Alamo, it has long been proposed that a sequence of high-rise buildings for the length of Alamo be connected at the seventh floor level by bridges that would be the Iron Horse Trail in Alamo. Such elevation of the trail would allow the current trail to become the southbound lanes of the new Tree Museum Parkway (a toll road). The currect Danville Blvd would be the northbound lanes.

Most of the existing ranch style houses in the corridor would be razed to create surrounding open space for the high rise commercial, retail and high-density luxury residential provided by the connected chain of towers.

Such a plan has worked well for Singapore and should work well in Alamo.
