The Gilmore Elementary School-Claremont Connector trail project recently moved closer to completion after League City City Council awarded a new construction contract on May 28.

The gist

The total construction budget for the project will be $1 million, according to agenda documents.

The project will build a concrete trail from the existing Claremont Connector trail to the nearby pedestrian bridge and beyond to Gilmore Elementary School and a pedestrian bridge, according to agenda documents. The project supports the city’s goal of further connecting its existing trail system.

By the numbers

According to agenda documents, the $1 million budget includes the following expenses:
  • $896,000 construction services contract with Wilson Building Services
  • $89,000 work change directive with Wilson Building Services
  • $17,000 construction material testing services contract with Terracon Consultants

The city could not confirm the project’s completion date by press time.

What else?

In 2019, Clear Creek ISD and League City applied for a Texas Department of Transportation grant to fund improvements to sidewalks in League City, including the project near Gilmore Elementary School, but were denied the grant, according to agenda documents.
