Wilson Park Trail Renovation and Lighting Project

Construction continues on the Wilson Park Trail project. Wilson Park is located at 675 North Park Avenue west of College Avenue (U.S. Highway 71B) and south of North Street. The project includes the demolition of the existing 6-foot wide asphalt park trail, construction of a new 6-foot wide concrete trail, addition of a Light Emitting Diode (LED) trail lighting system, and associated site work.

Prospect Street access to the parking area located west of the tennis courts and north of the restrooms will be closed from 7:00 a.m. on Monday, January 31, 2011, through Friday, February, 4, 2011, to facilitate the demolition of the existing entry drive and construction of a new raised, colored crosswalk. Access to the parking area is anticipated to be reopened Friday afternoon. Parking will be available in the remaining three parking lots located within the park during this time.

The safety of the public during the construction of this project is of the utmost importance. Orange construction fencing, barricades and signs will be used to direct park and trail users around the construction areas.
