This 1.0-mile trail travels through 13 neighbors’ front yards and was built along the rural cross-section of CTH C. In addition to the standard 10-foot-wide asphalt trail, the project includes a 175-foot clear-span pre-fabricated multi-use bridge and 300-foot of boardwalk approaches.

The trail also incorporated extensive public involvement with alternative alignments, tie-in with Pleasant Prairie’s future trail extension, significant utility coordination / relocation, a boardwalk within wetlands, and stormwater modifications.

Full roadway closure and alternative detouring was accomplished through strong interagency coordination and extensive public outreach. KL Engineering assisted in the collaboration between the contractor and utilities for project scheduling when it came to light that all the utility relocations had not occurred as per the utility agreements.

Lynda Fink and Travis Brush led the construction oversight on the project.
