In May 2008, the contractor has completed Phases III and IV of the Virginia Corridor Trail from College to Roseburg Avenues, and from Orangeburg to Granger Avenues. George Reed, Inc. completed the installation of this latest section of the bike and pedestrian trail in July, including landscape and site furnishings such as benches, tables, path lighting and “neighborhood trail entrances” at the street intersections. The $3.35 million contract was largely funded by a $2.87 million State Urban Parks grant.
The Parks, Recreation and Neighborhoods Department has hired a consultant to design and prepare construction documents for Phase V of the project from Granger to Bowen Avenues, including a new pedestrian and bike bridge over Briggsmore Avenue. The consultant and staff have held two public design workshops for this project in order to develop a design that is functional, aesthetically pleasing and has a positive impact on the neighborhood. Construction for this phase is anticipated to commence in February 2010 and will take 14 months to complete.
Phase VI of the project will continue the trail from Bowen Avenue to Woodrow Avenue in North Modesto, for a total trail length of 2.65 miles. Phase VI is anticipated to start construction in April of 2010.
