Noonday Creek Trail Bells Ferry Trailhead Town Center CID
Winter Design provided the project renderings/concepts for this project, and ARCADIS provided the project’s Feasibility Study and presented their Park Programming Analysis and Report. Preliminary engineering and design is now complete. Notice to proceed with construction was given on May 1, 2017.
Currently, the Bells Ferry Trailhead has a 60-space parking lot, a Zagster Bike Share facility, bench seating and trash disposal. Integrated Construction and Nobility INC is expected to complete construction by the end of 2017.
As the eastern entrance to the Noonday Creek Trail, the Bells Ferry Trailhead is an ideal parking area for those getting started on the scenic, seven-mile trail. This upcoming project creates enhancements to the trailhead area, making it more visitor-friendly and providing amenities to help trail users like walkers, joggers, and cyclists, begin and finish their trail journey more comfortably.
Additions include a restroom facility, outdoor lighting and shade trees. A bike rental station was added in November of 2015 as part of the Zagster Town Center Bike Share Program, so all those who want to bike the trail can, even if they didn’t bring a bicycle!
The Town Center CID will provide 100% of the funding for this project, which is estimated at $525,000 with construction scheduled for completion in 2017.
