Improvement Project 18-3, 2018 Pavement Management Program is scheduled to start the week of August 13, 2018. This project includes the rehabilitation of approximately 5,400 feet of bituminous trail by reclamation of the existing bituminous surface, grading, bituminous surfacing, topsoil and seed.
The reclamation process is done by pulverizing the existing asphalt surface and reusing it as a new base. It will provide the trail with additional strength and longevity. Reclaiming will also eliminate reflective cracking seen with traditional overlays.
Residents and park visitors should expect intermittent trail closures during construction. The substantial completion date for the project is September 30, 2018. Note this is independent of the Rice Creek Watershed District Hansen Park Flood Mitigation Project.
