ATX Walk Bike Roll Survey 09/24/2021

ATX Walk Bike Roll Survey

The City of Austin is conducting a survey to determine the need for urban trails. This is an opportunity to get some visibility and funding for the bike trail projects in the East Riverside area. Some examples of bike projects that should happen:
Replace the bridge over Country Club Creek at Krieg Field that was washed out in 2015.
Build a pedestrian underpass under the 183 bridge over the Colorado River. This will create the inly safe crossing of Highway 183 south of the river.
Finish the segment of the Country Club Creek Trail between Riverside Drive and Oltorf. This will allow residents to use the pedestrian underpass under Riverside Drive.

The city process for the change in zoning rquests for the apartment complexes south of Roy Guerrero Park revealed that there are street Right of Way easements that extend east from South Pleasant Valley Road almost all the way across the park. These easements were revealed in the public notification of the zoning request for the new development south of the park. The city required an extension of Lakeshore east of South Pleasant Valley Road to connect to the extension of Wickersham. In this case there is no opportunity for public input opposing the use of parkland for roads for private development, because these easements were created by the city when the property was still in private ownership, before the city purchased the land as park. At the August 8 City Council First Reading of this zoning change the East Riverside/Oltorf Combined (EROC) Neighborhood Planning Area Contact Team requested that all remaining street Right of Way in Guerrero Park be vacated. At the Council meeting on August 22 for the Second Reading of this agenda item Council Member Poole read into the record a request to the City Manager to direct city staff to investigate removing the remaining Right of Way in Guerrero Park, so that future development cannot turn more of the park into roads. The EROC Contact Team made 5 recommendations to Council to protect Roy Guerrero Park from the impact of dense development upstream on Country Club Creek:
1. Remove the Right of Way in Roy Guerrero Park and on the west side of South Plaesant Valley Road.
2. Build a storm drain that will take storm water directly to the Colorado River instead of dumping it into Country Club Creek, which would worsen the erosion in Guerrero Park.
3. Create parkland in the floodplain area between the south border of the park and Elmont Drive.
4. Reroute the Country Club Creek Trail before any construction begins. The extension of Lakeshore will pave over the Lakeshore entrance to the CCC Trail, and the extension of Elmont Drive will pave over the Elmont entrance to the CCC Trail.
5 Create a Recreational Use Easement from Elmont Drive to Wickersham along Country Club Creek. This will allow a natural surface trail to be built connecting the Elmont entrance to the pedestrian underpoass under Riverside Drive.

May 1, 2019 Environmental Commission - Austin, TX

On May 1 the Watershed Protection Department made a presentation to the Environmental Commission on the status of the erosion remediation project in Roy Guerrero Park. The erosion remediation project must be completed before the pedestrian bridge by Kreig Field can be replaced. After further research, the original design for the remediation was found to be inadequate. The erosion project is still in the design phase.
The new timeline:
Design will be complete in 2020. Permitting and bid in early 2021. Construction complete in late 2022. Then the bridge replacement project will begin. The video of the presentation is at this link (Item 6):
