Project Location: From Fifth to 15th streets along Shoal Creek
Staff is studying the feasibility of a 0.8 mile long, 12-foot wide urban trail and associated stream improvements of Shoal Creek from Fifth Street to 15th streets. The trail is intended for active transportation and recreation users of all ages and abilities. We aim to make the trail link to the on-street bicycle and sidewalk network; include amenities and unique features; create a safe, environmentally sustainable destination; and preserve and improve the wildlife habitat. The preliminary engineering report (PER) will provide recommendations on how this urban trail can encourage non-vehicular mobility, connectivity and improve the health of Shoal Creek.
The preliminary engineering report will also explore widening the existing trail and adding creek crossings while preserving, protecting and improving environmental conditions along the creek corridor. The preliminary engineering will include data collection, engineering analysis, stakeholder feedback, site assessments, preliminary design development and cost estimates required for final design and implementation.
