In 2013 the Parks & rec. Dept. conducted several public outreach workshops and hosted an on-line trail survey. Thank you to everyone who participated in the workshops or via the on-line survey. We have received over 503 survey responses and had approximately 75 attendees at our workshop! Additionally, we sent out project information flyers to 1,000 neighbors who live along the main trail corridor. We have collaborated with Community Councils and organizations such as Bike Anchorage and Trail Watch to collect input for this project.
From the feedback that we received, we were able to develop this definition to guide our planning process:
Definition: “Critical Segments”: A “Critical Segment” is a portion of the trail that was determined to have the highest density of hazards AND is considered the highest priority by the community. Below is an outline of our proposed scope of work, please refer to the map graphics in the side bar for more information:

The project will be completed in multiple phases over two years. Phase 1 was completed in summer of 2014. Phase 2 will be constructed in summer 2015.
