The extension will connect to future Safe Routes to School improvements. ■ Austin Transportation Department (ATD) is requesting a permanent change of use of parkland for drainage purposes through the Chapter 26 process. Project Site Description and Proposed Improvements ■ Pioneer Crossing Neighborhood Park is currently undeveloped and drains towards the west and towards the new future Taebaek Dr. ■ The extension of Taebaek Dr. will include a culvert from the east side of the road to a stormwater facility constructed as part of the Braker Ln extension project. This culvert will be constructed within the Taebaek R.O.W, however, grading will be required along Taebaek in order to direct the water into a culvert traversing parkland. ■ Drainage grading along the Braker Ln. ROW will also be required to direct surface flows from the park. Parkland Mitigation Summary: ■ Permanent Use (Drainage): 9,574 sq. ft. = $146,840 ■ Total Mitigation Amount = $146,840 ■ Austin Transportation Department will pay the mitigation amount.
