As you review this month’s enews you will read about a diverse array of projects and activities that we have recently offered to the community; this remains an exciting time to be associated with the Wolf River Conservancy. Thanks to all of our WRC contributaries for your continued generous financial support toward our work.
Along with our educational and recreational outreach activities, an important milestone was reached last week toward the development and construction of the Wolf River Greenway Trail. On June 22nd our Construction and Design team received and opened bids for the construction of the Epping Way segment located in the Raleigh community. We are excited to announce that we expect to begin construction on this segment by August 1st, 2016. See the Wolf River Greenway map at this link for more information.
Concurrent with the construction on the Epping Way segment, we expect to advertise and begin accepting construction bids on the John F. Kennedy Park segment with the actual construction starting sometime this fall. Later in the year, construction bids will be taken for the Mud Island segment.
We expect to complete the remaining Wolf River Greenway Trail segments by late 2019 or early 2020. We know that building the trail is only the beginning; we see its completion as being catalytic and transformational for our community, generating a wide variety of uses and opportunities. Please continue to check our website, www.wolfriver.org, for updates on the progress of the Wolf River Greenway Trail.
We are all very fortunate to live in a community with so many significant greening initiatives! Thanks for your support.
