SUBJECT:

Briefing by on-call engineering consultant, Pape-Dawson Engineers, Inc., on the completed traffic analysis related to the Lower Segment of the 2017 Bond Broadway Corridor Project


SUMMARY:

Pape-Dawson Engineers, Inc. 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. Specifically, Pape-Dawson will discuss the Traffic Analysis related to the Lower Segment project (E. Houston Street to IH-35).


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 ($500,000 preliminary design)

Currently, the design of the Lower Segment project is approximately 40% complete. 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 11-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.
