Ship Canal Trail Rolling Along

Crews working on Phase II of the South Ship Canal Trail – 6th Avenue West to 11th Avenue West – “rolled” out about 2/3 of the required paving Wednesday.  It was smooth trails until rain started, dousing this weather-dependent work (asphalt likes it dry, dry, dry!).  The new background-blending black fencing gives the trail both improved safety and pleasant aesthetics…

Crews plan to start work up again Monday, westward toward 11th Avenue West.  Once the trail is paved, the team goes on to install concrete warning pads; detectable warning plates; bollards; mineral aggregate for the trail shoulders; signing; hydro-seeding and more.
