Work being purposed includes to repair 2,000 feet of damaged trail in the Isberg Recreation Area. Final trail widths will be between 10-15 feet. Trail construction will begin with placing the following on the existing ground: geotextile fabric, biaxial geogrid, base course of rock tailings, and a surface course of compacted D-1 gravel. Placement of the base course may take place during winter months over frozen ground to reduce pumping and ground disturbance. Additionally, several 18" diameter culverts will be installed to accommodate seasonal flowing water. A larger 36" culvert with be installed to accommodate Cripple Creek. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-4), dated September 11, 2020.
