Location: Richland Hills, Texas
Jones|Carter is providing engineering services for the development of an off-street and on-street bike and pedestrian facility design. Services also include topographic surveys, environmental document/studies, acquisition of Oncor encroachment agreement, as well as public input meetings and construction phase services for the project. The TxDOT-funded proposed improvements consist of a 12-foot wide 1.5-mile long concrete shared use path connecting Glenview Drive from the northern city limits to the TRE Train Station to the south of State Highway 121. The trail will be located within the existing Oncor Electric Transmission Right-of-Way that runs north-south through the city. The route will cross State Highway 183 (Baker Boulevard) near the intersection of Handley-Ederville Road. The route will terminate at the intersection of Handley-Ederville on the north side of SH121; however, no improvements are proposed to the existing sidewalk facilities and pedestrian corridor within the SH 121 Right-of-Way.
