Sinton Trail open again; no HP calming work date set

       The final work was implemented recently by City Parks (final drainage touches beside the pavement overlay poured in August) and a private contractor (a city- required overlay in front of the 84-unit Creekview Townhomes off Centennial Boulevard), according to city trails coordinator Jeff Haley.
       The only incomplete trail portion between Centennial and Chestnut Street is at the Holland Park Boulevard crossing, where the curb and gutter and trail ramps have not been restored yet because the city's Planning and Engineering departments envisioned a traffic calming project there this year. No schedule for that work has been announced. The plan last spring had been to start construction as soon as Parks (the trail), Stormwater Enterprise (removal of drainage-blocking trees) and Springs Utilities (a sewer-line relocation) had finished their work.
       Kristin Bennett of City Planning said that a reorganization this month within some city departments has briefly altered priorities, but she hoped that a schedule for the Holland Park Boulevard calming work (intended to slow traffic along a wide segment of the residential street) can be announced soon.
