Grindstone Creek Trail public meeting to discuss bridge locations

Thursday, July 11, 2013 | 6:00 a.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Columbia Parks and Recreation will host a drop-in public meeting July 17 for the Grindstone Creek Trail development project.

The meeting will be from 5 to 7 p.m. at Activity and Recreation Center, 1701 W. Ash St.

Columbia Parks and Recreation staff and engineers from Allstate Consultants will be able to discuss proposed bridge locations. These locations were chosen as a result of recent survey work and hydrological studies conducted by Allstate to determine whether the preferred low water bridges will work or if elevated clear span bridges are required.

Any technical questions regarding the project can also be addressed, such as hydrology, bridge design, tree removal and alternates to connect area neighborhoods to the trail, as well as any questions regarding the remaining GetAbout projects.

This meeting is the fourth effort that Parks and Recreation has made to gather public opinions for the project. Previous efforts included two public meetings and one online survey over the past two years.

Supervising editor is Hannah Wiese.
