SUBJECT:

Briefing and status report on 2017 Bond Broadway Corridor Project


SUMMARY:

TCI will provide an informational briefing on the Broadway Corridor Project (E. Houston Street to E. Hildebrand Avenue), a 2017 Bond funded project, located within Council District 1.


BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

On May 6, 2017, San Antonio voters approved the 2017-2022 Bond Program. As part of Proposition 1, Streets, Bridges & Sidewalk Improvements, funds in the amount of $42,000,000.00 were approved for improvements associated with the Broadway Corridor from Houston Street to Hildebrand Avenue.

The project is divided into three segments:

* Lower Segment: Houston Street to IH-35 ($27.15 Million City Funds)
* Upper Segment Phase 1: IH-35 to Mulberry Avenue ($14.85 Million City Funds & $14.0 Million TxDOT Funds)
* Upper Segment Phase 2: Mulberry Ave to Burr Road ($500K preliminary design)


ISSUE:

Currently, the design of the Lower Segment project is approximately 40% complete with anticipated completion of January 2020. The project scope for the Lower Segment includes full roadway and sidewalk construction, pedestrian amenities, lighting and streetscape with trees, Low Impact Development landscaping, on-street parking, drainage, utility and traffic signal upgrades, and a minimum of 10-foot sidewalks.

Due to right-of-way constraints south of Josephine Street, protected bike lanes are proposed as part of a separate project along a combination of Avenue B and N. Alamo from Josephine Street to Houston Street. However, TCI is currently developing a traffic model to determine potential impacts from removing an additional vehicle travel lane to provide space for protected bike facilities along Broadway from Josephine Street to Houston Street. The results of the analysis are anticipated to be complete by September 2019 and may be presented at a future Transportation & Mobility Committee.
