Oakdale Road Farm-to-Market

Oakdale Road Farm-to-Market
This project will identify roadway infrastructure needs and deficiencies, recommend improvements that accommodate all modes of transportation, and develop a project design concept that supports existing and proposed land uses.

What's happened? During the planning phase, the project team used the City’s Urban Street Design Guidelines (USDG), along with citizen’s input, to determine the best solution for the Oakdale Road project.   A preferred conceptual design was developed and the project team has advance the design plans to 90% complete.

What's next?  Real estate acquisition is nearing completion and will be followed by the bid phase.  During the bid phase, the City takes competitive bids from contractors to perform the work.  Construction begins after City Council approves the choice of the lowest responsive bidder.

A 2010 Transportation Bond Project

The goal of this project is to make improvements to Oakdale Road from Brookshire Boulevard to City Limits to better serve the community and all roadway users including residents, businesses, motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users and commuters. Public input will be an integral part of this process. 

A thorough review and analysis of existing conditions compared to current and future land uses and transportation needs will be conducted. Current and anticipated deficiencies will be identified in order to determine what improvements are needed to best serve the community.

Proposed improvements include:

  • bicycle lanes
  • sidewalks
  • planting strips
  • landscaping
  • curb and gutter
  • storm drainage infrastructure
  • parallel parking, medians, signalization, and crosswalks.

A map of the project limits are shown below.
