b.)   Mr. Yauch along with Mr. Washburn addressed the construction of the sidewalk from the Brooker Creek Bridge to East Lake Road. It appears the portion from the bridge to 3051 T.W. Blvd is not included…they will report back to us on this. It also appears that some sidewalk will be installed (200 feet) from T.W. Blvd north on Tanglewood Trail.

 

2/22/12 Sidewalk Update

Ray, we can talk about it at the meeting, but the engineering group did provide a Notice to Proceed to the Contractor on Monday for both Tarpon Woods Boulevard and Tanglewood Trail sidewalks…about a $250K work order.  The contractor has a few weeks to obtain materials and mobilize; we do not yet have their schedule, but I should have by Monday night.

SIDEWALK UPDATE

11/30/11

Here is an update on the work that is planned or underway for the area: 

Sidewalk on Tarpon Woods Boulevard  – The plans have been completed and provided to the sidewalks contractor for pricing.  At the last progress meeting, it was scheduled for construction in February 2012.  We have a progress meeting later this week and will advise if the schedule has changed.

9/30/11 SIDEWALK INSTALLATION UPDATE

- The sidewalk along Tarpon Woods Boulevard should be under construction before the end of this calendar year. There will be a gap on Tarpon Woods at the creek bridge; we are planning to construct a pedestrian bridge there next year, subject to funding availability. The sidewalk along Tanglewood Trail is scheduled for construction next calendar year.

8/12/11 SIDEWALK UPDATE

We have been advised that the County will begin work on the sidewalk by years end. The only section that will not be done this year is over the creek which will require building a bridge adjacent to the bride now there.

TARPON WOODS SIDEWALK

December 2010

We were advised by County Commissioner Latvala that the addition of sidewalks westward from the current end just east of the Brooker Creek Bridge to East Lake Road has be DEFUNDED and is no longer under consideration.

1/11/2010 As of this date we are unable to get a commitment as to when the sidewalk project will begin.

6/20/2010 We continue to await this project. Budget cuts are hampering the start.

8/10/2010 No information as yet.

In 2008 a permit was posted in the paper concerning the construction of a sidewalk and pedestrian overpass in the Tarpon Woods Community…    Do not be concerned about this permit...it is to allow the county to build (finish building) a sidewalk from East Lake Road to a the point where it now ends about 100 yards east of the bridge over Brooker Creek. The pedestrian bridge will cross Brooker Creek, parallel to the existing bridge as the bridge itself is not wide enough to accomodate a sidewalk. This project will allow us to walk from East Lake Road to Ridgemoor Blvd without having to go into the street.

 

There are two phases of this project. The first being the extension of the sidewalk from Lost Oaks to East Lake Road. This phase of the project is approved and funded with work supposedly starting very soon.

 

The second phase will be the construction of the pedestrian bridge parallel to the existing bridge just past the Country Club entrance allowing pedestrians to continue on a sidewalk instead of walking on the street.  This phase is yet to be funded.
