Path construction achieved a significant milestone with the completion of the first phase of the project, the recycled rubber path and over-the-water walkway east of the Peach.
The contract tender to build the walkway required a two-phase construction timeline, with work suspended as of mid-June to ensure walkway and beach access would not be impacted during the busy summer months.
Project elements completed to date include:
Modified plaza of pavers around The Peach that shape the realigned walkway
Recycled rubber walkway through the existing trees
Concrete walkway over the water has been constructed and finished
The multi-use path has been built from the Peach to the crosswalk at the intersection of Lakeshore Drive and Churchill Avenue
The plan to maintain two-way traffic and angle parking has been realized
Existing large trees in the area were successfully preserved
