Several New Braunfels area road projects are under consideration to receive funding through the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization’s Transportation Improvement Program that will pay for projects over the next four years.
The AAMPO’s “Your Move!” survey offers citizens the opportunity to share feedback about the proposed projects, which will be taken into consideration when funding is allocated.
“New Braunfels has received TIP funding for projects in the past, most recently the Citywide Pedestrian Improvement Project,” said Garry Ford, assistant public works director and city engineer, in a statement. “Input from residents plays a key role in receiving these funds.”
The city of New Braunfels has submitted the following four projects for consideration:
Barbarosa Road/Saur Lane from FM 1101 to Saengerhalle Road: The $11.06 million project would expand the roadway from two to four lanes, incorporate a raised median or center turn lane, add sidewalks, improve intersections and more.
Kohlenberg Road from FM 1101 to I-35: This $6.45 million project would expand the roadway from two to four lanes, incorporate a raised median or center turn lane, add sidewalks, improve intersections and more.
Dry Comal Creek Hike and Bike Trail from Walnut Avenue to Elizabeth Avenue: The $1.55 million project would construct a ten-foot concrete trail along the Dry Comal Creek and incorporate crossings under railroad tracks and Landa Street.
Common Street from Liberty Avenue to Loop 337: This $1.32 million project would install six-foot sidewalks and enhance crosswalks along the roadway.
Three Texas Department of Transportation projects located in New Braunfels are also eligible for funding:
- $13.3 million for work on I-35 at Loop 337
- $10.9 million for work on I-35 at Solms road
- $5.6 million for work on I-35 at Schmidt Avenue.
The deadline to complete the survey is June 27, and those interested can participate online at the AAMPO website.
