Alligator Creek Trail

Conceptual & Preliminary Design



Project Overview:
Alligator Creek Trail is an identified Opportunity Area on the City’s Hike & Bike Trail Plan. It is envisioned as a linear trail park that will have multi-use paths, natural and bike facilities to provide clear and safe connections to local destinations, and links to neighborhoods within the Geronimo and Alligator Creek Watershed. The project scope area encompasses the northwest side of the City to Alligator Creek out to IH-35 and portions within the ETJ. Over the last few years, several commercial and residential development have installed segments of the proposed trail.

To create a trail that is beneficial and seamless, the City has contracted with Vickrey & Associates to develop a conceptual and preliminary design analysis to coordinate with stakeholders, determine potential trail alignments, and identify future funding. This effort will also allow for this proposed trail to be eligible for federal and state funding.

Preliminary Design Cost & Timeline:
The total cost for the preliminary design is $83,340.78 and will be funded in part with City park development funds ($25,340.78) and New Braunfels EDC funds ($58,000). The preliminary design is estimated to take three months to complete.
