The Phase II construction portion of the Ship Canal Trail is broken into two parts, and part one has reached substantial completion. Construction on this phase of the trail extension began in February 2010. The project has extended the multi-use trail along the south side of the Ship Canal from 6th Avenue West to 11th Avenue West. The work included paving the trail, removing railroad ties and rails, installing low retaining walls, installing chain link fencing, adding signage and wheel stops. In addition, a new portion of paving on 11th Avenue West and West Ewing Place was added.
“Punchlist”, or final construction, tasks in part one of this phase will be completed in the next few weeks. For updates and more photos on the project, click here.
