Project Status Update
The project will occur in two phases, starting construction this summer and continuing through 2015. Phase 1 was completed in summer 2014.
Construction of Phase 2 will begin again in the spring of 2015 and is anticipated to go until mid-October. All major trail events will be accommodated by re-opening the trail for events. Pedestrian and Bicycle detour routes will be posted on the Parks and Recreation Facebook page, Twitter and here on the project web site while work has commenced.

Construction drawings for Phase 2 of the Lanie Fleischer Chester Creek Trail are now at 65%. The plans are available for review under the "Graphics" tab of the side bar (scroll to bottom of page). The plans have gone through an Army Corps of Engineers review and have been approved for a Nationwide Permit. The next step in the planning/design process is to go through a two-week internal Municipality of Anchorage peer review. The team will be conducting several outreach public meetings this winter to discuss the pedestrian detour routes and impacts of future trail construction on our community this summer. Stay tuned for more updates as we finalize our plans.

PHASE 2 of the Lanie Fleischer Chester Creek project scope is currently in the final stage of design. A public meeting was held on Nov. 20th to share the DRAFT project plan for 2015 construction. The DRAFT Detour routes were also presented and feedback was collected. The design team is now working on refining the plans and preparing a package for various permit and review processes. There will be more public meetings to collect feedback and share project status over the next several months. Stay tuned for more updates.
