TriScapes Construction (TSI) is substantially complete for the 2,000 linear feet of new concrete trail along Level Creek Road. TSI is now working on the asphalt portions of the trail through the old EE Robinson Park (North), having graded and placed gravel base for the section in the park. The raised crosswalk and retaining walls have been completed in this section as well. A proposed at-grade trail crossing on Level Creek Road is being installed between the Markim Forest subdivision and the back entrance to Gwinnett Church. While some surveying & clearing has been completed in the remaining sections, these sections will get underway later in the Spring.
The TSI contract will encompass about 4 and a half miles of trail construction, beginning at the intersection of Level Creek Road and Church Street and extending both along roadways and through natural areas to Whitehead Road, temporarily ending at a trailhead parking lot at the Bethany UMC Church located at 144 Whitehead Road near the new bridge.
Gary Pirkle Park Field Expansion.
Both sides of the park have the turf installed and the west side still needs a few more items to be resolved before we can open up the fields for competition. The east side (new) of the park is complete and has already had at least one tournament at the end of February.
