Connecting the Dots: The Future of Continental Sidewalk

Things are coming full circle on E. Continental Boulevard. The new sidewalk will create a loop connecting Continental Boulevard to FM 1709, S. Kimball Avenue and S. Carroll Avenue.  Soon, pedestrians will have access to schools, parks, shopping and residential areas.

This sidewalk project will improve mobility in the area by reducing traffic and allow easier access for pedestrians to walk between school and home during drop off and pick up times.

When the project is completed, the new walking path will be about six feet wide with handicap accessible ramps and handrails in several locations.

Future improvements to Continental Boulevard include:

The project is part of the City’s Mobility Master Plan. The Continental Sidewalk portion of the plan is estimated to cost $317,000.
