Project Overview: ES-0399
The project is expected to build a minimized footprint, 2 lane roadway with
shoulders designated as bicycle lanes. Clearing of existing vegetation,
construction of an asphalt road section, sidewalk and/or pedestrian
boardwalk, drainage, stormwater, sewer, and illumination are all expected
project elements. Areas of the roadway prism are expected to be constructed
to facilitate hydraulic connectivity between wetlands divided by the new
The project is expected to provide at least a segment of a “Safe Route to
School” serving Cordata Elementary School on Aldrich Rd. Intersection and
sidewalk improvements on Aldrich Rd along with a revised connection to the
existing West Horton Road alignment will be evaluated during design.
Sidewalk and boardwalk are expected to provide for pedestrian access along
the north side of the new alignment. No pedestrian facilities are currently
proposed for the south side of this new alignment.
This project will reduce congestion on roadways to the east, by enhancing
the currently limited east-west access in the area, and provide access to
the city’s proposed Cordata Park. Funding is from the Surface Transportation
Program (STP) (WCOG).
