This 1.0-mile trail travels through the front yards of 13 neighbors and was built along the rural cross-section of CTH C in Pleasant Prairie, WI. In addition to the standard 10-foot-wide asphalt trail, the project includes a 175-foot clear-span prefabricated multi-use bridge and 300 feet of boardwalk.
The trail project required extensive public involvement with alternative alignments, a 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 were accomplished through strong interagency coordination and extensive public outreach. KL Engineering assisted in the collaboration between the contractor and utilities for the project schedule after it came to light that all the utility relocations had not occurred as per the utility agreements.
