Full Public Notice          Project Plans

The project consisted of the placement of approximately 0.6-mile of trail extending from the east side of 100 Acre Wood to Moorcreek Drive with connection to the previously constructed YMCA pond trail.  

Additionally, following the impacts to the previously constructed pond trail by Hurricane Harvey in 2017, corrective actions were taken on the infrastructure of the pond between February 2019 and November 2020.  The infrastructure work included addition of riprap to repair a breach in the bank of the pond, removal of sediment deposited during flooding, reshaping the pond to pre-impact conditions, connecting portions of the pond loop trail, and connecting an island in the pond to the shore. 

Approximately 0.13 acre of WB002 are permanently lost due to fill and approximately 0.43 acre of WB002 have been converted to palustrine emergent (PEM) and palustrine scrub-shrub (PSS) wetlands (Sheet 2 of 8).  WA002 is a PSS wetland totaling approximately 0.34 acre, while WA003 has PEM wetlands totaling approximately 0.02 acre as well as PSS wetlands totaling approximately 0.020 acre.  Despite the total of 0.56 acre of impacts to WB002 that are unavoidable within the project area, the remaining delineated wetlands and other waters were avoided during construction.
