Three segments of road were selected to be of highest priority due to the number of students in the neighborhood, the severity of the road problem, and the road’s proximity to the school.
The paths will be 6-feet wide and built on only one side of the road, but the survey process requires workers to get the measurements of the edges of City Right of Way, which are 35-feet from the center of the road. The engineers are taking into account any trees or landscaping that the paths might need to go around, and will ensure that these paths make Smithville look great. We are also working with them to use this as an opportunity to fix any drainage issues on the road, and to further beautify the streets.
Once the preliminary drawings are complete, we will host a public meeting. Watch here for more information!
