Project Status Update
The project will occur in two phases, starting construction this summer and continuing through 2015. Phase 1 includes the main trail corridor from mile post 0.0 at the Westchester Lagoon to mile post 1.0 at the Arctic Blvd. tunnel (east). Spur trails to be repaired include: the “social path” at the Westchester Lagoon, Virginia Ct. Spur, Arctic Blvd. Spur, N St. Spur, L St. Spur and Bunker St. Spur.
Construction began on Monday July 21 and is anticipated to go until mid-September. All major trail events will be accommodated by re-opening for events. Pedestrian and Bicycle detour routes will be posted on the Parks and Recreation Facebook page, Twitter and project web site while work has commenced.
