KTMPO is seeking the following amendments to the 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) and FY 2015-2018 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP):

Amendment Summaries:

Statewide Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP)

The Cities of Belton and Nolanville and the Village of Salado were awarded Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) funds through TxDOT’s 2015 Statewide TAP Call for Projects. Below is a summary of each project (amount awarded is approximate):

Belton:  Chisholm Trail Hike and Bike Facility – $2.1 million

The project will include an ADA compliant 6’ sidewalk with existing bike lanes, and ADA compliant 10’ hike and bike trail, and amenities including landscaping, lighting, and signage.  The route will extend along University Boulevard (0.2 miles), across Crusader Way, BNSF Railway underpass crossing to Belton Independent School District property to Industrial Park Road (0.2 miles), along Commerce Drive to Sparta Road intersection (0.38 miles), a total distance of 4,120 feet, or 0.78 miles.  This project will link to the City’s existing pedestrian facilities and complement existing network of city constructed trails to achieve contiguous transportation routes.  The project is estimated to take thirty-four (34) months to complete.

Nolanville:  Old Nolanville Road Elementary bicycle and pedestrian safety improvements – $500,000

The City of Nolanville TAP project is a Safe Routes to School type project.  All Nolanville Elementary students must access the school along the project route.  The project will run approximately 2,100 linear feet along Old Nolanville Road from Warriors Path to Pecan Valley Road bus stop.  The project will construct 6 feet wide sidewalks, with the sidewalk between Nolanville Elementary School and the entrance to Pecan Village being 10 feet wide to better enhance safety since the road curves sharply here.  The project will also include crosswalks, a bus stop with a pedestrian shelter, shared roadway bike lanes, and safe bicycle parking.  The project is estimated to take eighteen (18) months to complete.

Village of Salado:  Enhancements along Salado Creek – $300,000

The Village of Salado will construct a 10 feet wide concrete pedestrian and bicycle trail generally extending from near the intersection of College Hill Drive and Main Street, north along Peddlers Alley to Salado Creek, then meandering east to from a pair of loops between Peddlers Alley and Center Circle.  The trail length is approximately 3,430 linear feet.  The trial will provide connectivity between shopping, entertainment, recreation, lodging, and dining venues and residential neighborhoods.  Currently, there are no public sidewalks or trail along this route; pedestrians have been using public ROW. The project is estimated to take twenty (20) months to complete.

*Note of Basic Requirement:

Please note that public notice of public involvement activities and time established for public review and comment on the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and TIP development (and/or other planning documents) will satisfy the Program of Projects requirements of the Urbanized Area Formula Program (FTA Section 5307) operated by Hill Country Transit District.
