Georgetown to South Park Connection

Review Status

On August 19, 2021, we reviewed the schematic design (60% design phase) for the Georgetown to South Park Connection project.  At this meeting we voted to approve the schematic design with several recommendations to be addressed prior to the next meeting.  We will review the project again at the design development phase (90% design phase).

Project Description

The proposed project will include a protected shared-use path for cyclists and pedestrians between Georgetown and South Park Communities. The project builds upon work developed by the Georgetown and South Park communities, who have advocated for a bicycle and pedestrian connection.  The connection was also identified as an important project in several of the City's mobility and planning documents including the Georgetown Mobility Study, which identified the project as having a high opportunity to achieve access, mobility, equity, health, and safety outcomes.  In 2018 funding was allocated by City Council to develop a conceptual design study to assess feasibility and to study potential alignments to provide connections between the two neighborhoods and in 2020, City Council approved to fully fund the project, providing $5.2 million for it's development and construction.
