Lake Trail Ribbon Cutting June 3rd! May 22, 2015

Filed under: Uncategorized — Greater DEED @ 3:27 am

Join us for the Connector Trail Celebration!

Almost done. Come celebrate June 3!

The long-awaited Evergreen Lake Connector Trail is almost finished, and Evergreen Park & Recreation District (EPRD) And the Downtown Evergreen Economic District (DEED) would like you to join us in celebrating with a Community Walk from downtown to Evergreen Lake House on Wednesday, June 3, 2015. We’ll finish up by cutting the ribbon during the season’s first Evergreen Lake Summer Concert.

Parents, bring your kids and strollers! Wheelchair and walker users, join the fun! This is our chance to celebrate that Evergreen finally has an accessible lake trail!

Start Walking at Beau Jo’s
The walk starts at 5:30 PM in the parking lot in front of Beau Jo’s Pizza in downtown Evergreen. Following a short ceremony recognizing the people and organizations that made the project a reality, we will take to the trail, crossing the new 200-foot sloped bridge on our newly accessible way to Evergreen Lake House. The walk is about three-quarters of a mile long.

Cut the Ribbon at Evergreen Lake House
Officials will cut the ribbon for the new Connector Trail at the Summer Concert at Evergreen Lake House at 6:15 PM. Please stay and enjoy the concert, featuring the rock band Egg Planet, which ends at 9 PM. Shuttle buses will be available to return walkers to their cars downtown, or they can walk back on the accessible trail.

Lake Trail Invite

The Connector Trail project was funded by a $250,000 grant from Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) and a $30,000 contribution from the Evergreen Legacy Fund (ELF), plus in-kind donations of services and material. The Legacy Fund is derived from a voluntary 1 percent donation on sales of products and services at businesses to support infrastructure.

Lake Trail Progress Update 4/24/15 April 24, 2015

The blog has been quiet the last couple of weeks as we’ve been pouring our resources into the construction efforts on the Lake Trail Project. For anyone who reads the Canyon Courier, there was an excellent article outlining the events of the past two weeks, the road closure, and the construction events that can be viewed at this link: http://www.canyoncourier.com/content/highway-74-evergreen-lake-reopens

Additionally, real time updates on the progress and the road closure have been available on the EPRD website: http://www.evergreenrecreation.com/

We have been at the site daily since construction began on 4/13, and we’re happy to report that all of the foundation H-piles have been set and half of the concrete foundation has been poured. There was a temporary setback that required the installation of micro-piles for slope stabilization, along with the biggest snowstorm of the season and probably the wettest two weeks since the 2013 floods, but despite those hindrances, we are poised to finish the concrete work next week and set the precast components of the trail during a night closure the following week. Here are some photos:
