Lynn Gripon Park at Countryside Mountain Bike Trail (Low-Water Crossing)



Scope of Work

Kimley-Horn is designing a low-water crossing across Magnolia Creek to allow access east of the creek to develop and maintain Phase 2 of the Mountain Bike Trail at Lynn Gripon Park at Countryside. The low-water crossing will connect Phases 1 and 2 of the mountain bike trail. The low-water crossing will also allow the public works and parks departments the only access point for continuous maintenance of the area east of Magnolia Creek. Following the construction of the low-water crossing, City staff will once again be utilized to layout and construct Phase 2 of the mountain bike trail, which will complete this project.

Project Status as of May 2022

Design and Permitting Phase - Design began in December 2021 with a kick-off meeting, preliminary engineering field work, and site visit to determine the low-water crossing placement. The preliminary hydraulic study for the proposed low-water crossing area was submitted, and structural design began in January 2022. In February 2022, the consultant completed a tree inventory of protected trees and the data processing for the aquatic resources’ delineation within the proposed project area. The consultant delivered 60% design plans in April 2022. The plans were reviewed by City staff, and comments were returned to the consultant in May 2022. Structural design continues for the proposed crossing, and the consultant expects to deliver 90% design plans in July 2022. Design is scheduled to be completed in late FY2022, and construction is schedule for FY2023.
