The 2019 Bond Program provides funding for the construction of sidewalks. Sidewalk infrastructure will be installed according to the City's sidewalk prioritization plan. The plan seeks to close existing sidewalk gaps and install new sidewalks within one-quarter mile of schools within the City of Denton.
Installing or improving pedestrian routes to schools allows the City of Denton to pursue federal matching funds for sidewalk projects.
The City anticipates funding $2,000,000 in sidewalk improvements annually over a six-year period. The funding amount is an engineering estimate of City of Denton and includes design, right-of-way, and construction costs.
If approved, the sidewalk program construction would commence in the first year that funds are available. The start and end dates of specific sidewalk segments is dependent upon a number of factors. Generally, projects would be prioritized to address routes to schools.
