Meeting Date: 05/16/2019  

SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive, consider and act upon a funding request for trail connectivity under the Gosling Road Bridge expansion;
FISCAL IMPACT:
The estimated cost for the design and construction to adjust the slope pavement and tie-in to the existing trail system within Montgomery County is approximately $57,750.  This project can be funded through the 2018 Transportation Initiative for the George Mitchell Nature Preserve/Spring Creek Greenway Trails that has a balance of  $550,000.
 
BACKGROUND:
In conjunction with the Gosling Bridge Expansion Project, The Woodland Township received an offer to fund a modification to the slope paving below the Gosling Bridge deck to enhance the connectivity of the existing and proposed Spring Creek Trail systems on the Montgomery County side of Spring Creek (Attachment A).  Harris County Precinct 4 has authorized the modification for the Harris County side of the bridge with an estimated cost of $126,725 for the design and construction.  The estimated cost for the design and construction to adjust the slope pavement and tie-in to the existing trail system on the Montgomery County side is approximately $57,750.  An Exhibit for the construction was provided and a pictorial and location has been prepared (Attachment B).  

There is no specific funding allocated for participation in this project. However, in 2018, the Board of Directors allocated $550,000 for potential trail development projects in the Spring Creek Greenway/ George Mitchell Nature Preserve.
 
RECOMMENDATION:
Approve the request to fund the modification to slope paving below the Gosling Bridge on the Montgomery County side of Spring Creek to enhance the connectivity of the Spring Creek Greenway trail system with funding allocated from the 2018 Transportation Initiative for Spring Creek Greenway and authorize the President/General Manager to execute any agreements as may be connected therewith.
