Huge Pile of Trash
Wow, we picked up a lot of trash!
Public Works assures us they’ll continue to work with us throughout construction as evidenced in their recommendation to Council;
“This project will construct a new trail on the Walnut Creek Greenbelt to connect Balcones Park to Walnut Creek Metro Park through the greenbelt. The trail will be approximately three miles long and consist of ten foot wide concrete trail, two foot shoulders, approximately nine creek crossings by bridge or culvert crossing and two trailheads.
The project team has met with the affected neighborhoods and will provide ongoing communication with all property owners who will potentially be affected by the construction. Communication with these groups will continue throughout the construction phase.
Due to the potential for unknown subsurface conditions and utility conflicts when working in the right of way, a 5% contingency in funding has been included to allow for the expeditious processing of any change orders. The contract allows 365 calendar days for completion of the project. Construction is anticipated to start in March 2013 and continue until February 2014. This project is located within zip code 78759 and 78758 and is managed by the Public Works Department.”
