Project Summary

Council President Cynthia D. Borrego, in partnership with the Mid-Region Council of Governments (MRCOG), is conducting a Complete Streets planning study on Taylor Ranch Road/Golf Course Road between Montaño Rd. and Westside Blvd. Specifically, the study seeks to determine the safety issues and challenges for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit riders of all ages and abilities along the corridor. The principal goals of the study are to inventory the existing conditions, identify safety concerns, document gaps in the pedestrian and bicycle networks, and present recommendations for roadway improvements, as well as recommend character enhancements along the corridor.

The City has contracted with Bohannan Huston, Inc. to conduct the study. Please contact Aaron Sussman at asussman@bhinc.com or 505-923-3341 with comments or questions.
