The western Veterans Trail Phase 4 project is currently on hold pending easement acquisition. The eastern portion of the project from Nicholson Drive to SR 91 (the Barlow Road Sidewalk project) was bid in July and the work started in September. Barlow Road Closure: The contractor will be closing Barlow Road to east bound traffic only beginning Monday, October 11th for 30 calendar days. West bound traffic will be maintained (one way traffic only). A signed detour will be in place for east bound traffic to use Terex Road and Darrow Road. A detour map can be viewed here.
Barlow Road Sidewalk Project Description
This project will include the installation of an 8-foot-wide concrete sidewalk along the north side of Barlow Road from Nicholson Drive east to the railroad tracks. It will then transition to a 7-foot-wide concrete sidewalk to 1289 Barlow Road. At this point the sidewalk will transition to a standard 5-foot-wide concrete sidewalk to Darrow Road. The total project length is 1.05 miles. The trail & sidewalk construction includes storm drainage improvements, grading, driveway repairs, and tree removal. For more information about the other stages of Veterans Trail, take a look at the project story map.
