Loop 230 Sidewalk / Ramp Project

Beginning Wednesday January 13, 2016, TXDOT will begin demolition and construction of ADA-compliant pedestrian ramps from SH 95 to Mills Street along Loop 230.  This will require lane closures.  As such, please exercise caution when driving along Loop 230 --- especially when workers are present.  This is a project being coordinated and funded by TXDOT and will take approximately 7-10 days to complete.

The City of Smithville intends to augment this TXDOT project in FY17 by replacing damaged or ADA non-compliant sidewalks and constructing new sidewalks where none presently exist between SH95 and Olive, all of which will be ADA accessible and built to meet TXDOT standards. This project will also extend the Safe Routes to School sidewalks from Bluebonnet Circle to Webb Street (north side), which is currently a "cattle path" and heavily used by pedestrians. This project is intended to be a “Phase One” project. COS will seek funding in the future for a “Phase Two” project to complete the sidewalk network between Olive and McSweeney (where the SRTS sidewalks begin) at a later date.  Steel-reinforced sidewalks are intended to be 6’ wide.  The project will be funded by a Texas Transportation Commission grant as part of the 2015 Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP).  The total project cost is $496,959; Smithville’s match will be $64,000 for the Engineering portion (which is not eligible for grant funding) and $12,964 towards construction.  This project will greatly enhance pedestrian accessibility and safety along Loop 230.
