The City of Georgetown will celebrate the opening of the I-35 sidewalk from Leander Road to University Avenue with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Nov. 10 at 9 a.m. The event will be held at the southeast end of the Wolf Ranch Town Center parking lot.
The sidewalk provides a north-south connection from Leander Road at I-35 to University Avenue at Wolf Ranch Town Center in Georgetown. The $900,000 project was funded by the City of Georgetown. The sidewalk is approximately 1 mile and includes a switchback section on the south bank of the South San Gabriel River.
“This new sidewalk will provide a key connection between residents who live around Leander Road to restaurants, shopping, and jobs on Highway 29, and vice-versa. This investment allows people in Georgetown to have a safe and accessible route along a key corridor in our city,” Georgetown Mayor Dale Ross said. “This project was possible because of the good work and dedication of former Councilmember Keith Brainard. Keith’s pragmatism and diplomacy prioritized this project and made it a reality.”
The engineering firm for the project was Kennedy Consulting and the construction contractor was Patin Construction.
