Montgomery County Municipal Utility District No. 89
1575 Sawdust Road, Suite 400
Montgomery County Municipal Utility District No. 88 / Spring Creek Utility District
Birnham Woods Drive Sidewalk Extension
Birnham Woods Drive
Elan Boulevard to Fuller Bluff Drive
Currently, there is an existing sidewalk at the northeast corner of Elan Boulevard and Birnham Woods Drive which leads to Lucille J. Ball Elementary School and Birnham Woods Elementary School. The total enrollment at both schools is approximately 1,900 students combined. This project would extend the existing sidewalk walks south along Birnham Woods Drive and give students a safe route to walk to and from school. The sidewalk extension would be approximately 1.1 miles and would benefit residents and students in Montgomery County MUD No. 89 ("MCMUD 89"), Montgomery County MUD 88 ("MCMUD 88"), and Spring Creek Utility District ("SCUD").
The existing sidewalk ends at the northeast corner of Birnham Woods and Elan Boulevard. We would extend the sidewalk around this intersection to the southwest corner of Birnham Woods Drive and continue southbound along the western right-of-way of Birnham Woods Drive. We would continue approximately 3,300 linear feet ("LF") to Legends Ranch Central Drainage Facility along the southern edge of MCMUD 88 and 89. At this point, we plan to construct a pedestrian bridge, approximately 175 LF southbound into Spring Creek Utility District, and continue approximately 2,200 LF connecting to the existing sidewalk south of Fuller Bluff Drive along the western right-of-way of Birnham Woods Drive. Lastly, we plan to extend the sidewalk west from the corner of Elan Boulevard and Birnham Woods Drive, along the northern right-of-way of Elan Boulevard, approximately 400 LF to Ginger Trace Drive to serve the residents in MCMUD 88 north of Elan Boulevard.
The main goal of this project is to provide students a safe walking and biking path to and from school, recreational facilities and adjoining neighborhoods. The improvements are proposed to be a concrete which would allow both bikers and pedestrians to use. This would also increase connectivity between the three districts: Montgomery County Municipal Utility District No. 89, Montgomery County Municipal Utility District No. 88, and Spring Creek Utility District. Currently, Montgomery County is also expanding both Elan Boulevard and Birnham Woods Drive to a 4-lane divided roadway. This project will serve as an important complement to both the roadway expansions.
