Trail Improvements Postponed in Brannon Gearhart Park
Construction on drainage improvements and paving replacement on a 600’ section of hard surface trail at the west end of Brannon Gearhart Park has been postponed due to a delay in the fabrication of pre-cast concrete components for the project. As of October 31, staff were informed that our order has moved to production but could take two weeks to complete. Construction is now expected to begin later in November depending on weather and site conditions.
The project boundary begins at Valley Parkway on the west end to a point near the SW corner of the pond on the east end. See the Brannon Gearhart Project Map. The project plans can be viewed at https://ken-carylranch.org/rfp/. Enginuity Engineering Solutions was hired by KCRMA to develop the design and construction documents and Valles Construction will complete the construction work. The project is expected to take 2-4 weeks to finish. The trail, and a portion of the Parking lot off Valley Parkway will be closed during construction. Park visitors will need to use trail detours during this time.
Construction cost is estimated at $150,000. A combination of KCRMA reserves and 2019 operational budget will pay for the project. Questions regarding the project can be directed to Sean Warren, Open Space Manager at 303-979-1876 or email@example.com.
