Eastgate Neighborhood Sidewalk Safety Improvements

Last item for navigation

The City of College Station is designing and constructing a sidewalk connection between Lincoln Avenue and Thomas Park as identified as a need in the Eastgate Neighborhood Plan and the Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Greenways Master Plan.

This sidewalk will be constructed on one side of the following streets within the right-of-way:

    Nunn Street from Lincoln Avenue to Walton Drive;
    Walton Drive from Nunn Street to Puryear Drive; 
    Puryear Drive North from Walton Drive to James Pkwy.

To determine the side of the street the sidewalk will be placed the following are being considered:

    1. Potential tree disturbance or tree removal and
    2. Utility conflicts.

The goal is to choose the side of each street with the least amount of conflicts and disturbance to the existing area.

Mitchell and Morgan Civil Engineering Firm performed a preliminary route analysis and Plant People, LLC performed a tree survey. The City has reviewed conflicts and multiple route options. Based on this information, the City is proposing the following location for the sidewalk on each street:

    Nunn Street – Northeast side,
    Walton Drive – Northwest side,
    Puryear Drive – Northeast side.

See a map of the preferred route.

The width of the sidewalk and the location in relation to the curb will be determined through the design process.

A public meeting was held on Monday, June 24th to share the information above and receive input.

For those unable to attend, please provide any comments on the preferred route by Tuesday, July 9th to Jason Schubert at 979-764-6221 or [email protected].
