To enhance pedestrian safety and connectivity, the City of Leander engaged KSA to extend the sidewalk on Bagdad road between Crystal Falls Parkway and Eagles Way. The project connected existing sidewalks that serve multiple neighborhoods, the city’s library, the local animal shelter and various businesses. Construction included approximately 4,400 linear feet of concrete sidewalk, two pedestrian bridges, drainage structures, limestone block walls and associated improvements.
 
The City of Leander is dedicated to providing a practical and attractive environment for its residents and visitors. With this in mind, KSA designed this section of Bagdad road using limestone blocking for all the vertical concrete faces like toe and retaining walls. Large uniform limestone blocks were used as a wall capstone that also served as drop-off protection for the toe walls adjacent to the sidewalk’s surface. The proper conveyance of storm water is always an important element of infrastructure, so KSA designed a custom, rectangular channel combination structure in a narrow section of the existing right-of-way to allow runoff. Limestone block walls were used to cover the drainage system and make the area both functional and aesthetically pleasing. 
 
KSA enjoys a productive and mutually beneficial relationship with the City of Leander. We have designed and administered construction for three previous, successful sidewalk projects on Bagdad Road. For this project, the design team carefully reviewed construction materials and found ways to reduce quantities, and therefore costs – saving the project money and gaining continued favor with the City of Leander. The project was delivered on time and under budget.
