Body

________________________________________________________________________________

Summary:

Project No. 3-C-041-18 was created by Resolution No. 18-1023 on February 20, 2018.

 

This project will improve Woodland Road to a four-lane divided arterial roadway between K-10 Highway and College Boulevard.  Improvements include storm sewer, curb and gutter, medians, new streetlights, traffic signals, on-street bike lanes, landscaping and sidewalks. Attachment A is a map of the project area. 

 

Right-of-Way and/or easements need to be acquired on 32 tracts of land for the project.

 

This resolution is the first step in the eminent domain process (Attachment B).

 

To keep the project on schedule, land acquisition needs to be completed by June 1, 2019 to allow utility relocations to start in the summer/fall of 2019 with construction in 2020.  Staff is continuing to negotiate with the property owners to try to reach agreements to acquire the property before using the eminent domain process.
