The 2014 Bond Program included Timberland Boulevard as an improvement project from Excelsior Lane to U.S. Hwy 377 and Park Vista Boulevard from West Caylor Road to Timberland Boulevard. The project is being delivered in three separate phases.
Phase One of Timberland Boulevard, (M&C C-27438 approved August 25, 2015) was for the construction of Timberland Boulevard from North Caylor Road to Park Vista Boulevard. Phase One was completed in April 2017.
Phase Two of Timberland Boulevard, (M&C C-28339 approved August 15, 2017) was for the construction of Timberland Boulevard from North Caylor Road to Excelsior Lane. Phase Two was completed in August 2018.
Timberland Boulevard from Park Vista Boulevard to US Hwy 377 is identified as transportation impact fee eligible in the current adopted Transportation Impact Fee Study as Projects A-19/D-6 and A-20/D-7. The boundary between Service Areas A & D is the centerline of Timberland Blvd. The majority of the work to be completed is for the southern lanes in Service Area D so only revenues from that service area are being used in this project.
The construction contract will be funded by multiple funds including the 2014 Bond Program Fund, $519,973.00 Developer Contribution Fund from Steadman Farms (M&C C-27750), a $526,970.00 Intergovernmental Contribution Fund through an Interlocal Agreement with the City of Keller (M&C C-28491), and $600,000.00 of Transportation Impact Fee revenues from Service Area D.
The majority of the construction contract will be funded through the 2014 Bond Program. Available resources within the General Fund will be used to provide interim financing for these expenses until debt is issued. Once debt associated with this project is sold, bond proceeds will reimburse the General Fund in accordance with the statement expressing official Intent to Reimburse that was adopted as part of the ordinance canvassing the bond election (Ordinance No. 21241-05-2014).
The construction of Phase Three of Timberland Boulevard will require two extended road closures. Katy Road at the intersection of 377 is a 22' wide asphalt road and will require a full closure for 10 months to construct the new Timberland connection to 377, the new Timberland railroad crossing and the connection of Katy Road to the future Timberland Boulevard. The proposed closure and detour has been approved by the City of Keller. The construction of Timberland Boulevard will also require a 3 month closure of the eastbound lanes on Timberland Boulevard leaving the roundabout at Timberland Boulevard and Park Vista Boulevard.
