Work continues on the 62nd Street Multi Use path project. Some significant visual changes have occurred since the last update. They have occurred primarily where the trail will terminate on the east end at Allisonville Road.
The trail head concrete has been poured and concrete for the trail headed west has begun. The concrete looks like it will stretch to the western most point of the strip center that contains the Great Frame Up and west of here will be pavement until it reaches the Glendale area. This seems to be the case based upon the amount of concrete curb that has been laid and trail surface that is down. Additionally, some storm drains have been included for the parking lot where the Great Frame Up is. This is nice, but it could have been a key opportunity to include a rain garden instead of a straightÂ dump into the storm drain.
Speaking of drainage, further pipe-work continues to be the messy part of this project as numerous pockets ofÂ activity appear to be taking place along the corridor. Sidewalks have been poured at the John Strange elementary school which I can imagine will be a welcome additions for the parents and administrators.
I will continue to post updates as the project speeds toward completion this fall.
