Trail Improvements Begin July 31st

Two trails, the North Idaho Centennial Trail and the Prairie Trail, need to be seal coated.  Both seal coating projects will be “rolling projects,” meaning that the seal coating takes about two hours to dry, so the trail will be usable soon after the contractor has sealed it.  The contractor can seal about one mile of trail per day.

During the seal coating period, users will not be directed to an alternate route – rather, please be aware of the project, use the shoulder when traveling around the work area, and, when appropriate, walk bikes around the work area.

Work on the Prairie Trail begins Tuesday, July 31st.  It will start where the Prairie Trail intersects the Centennial Trail north of Riverstone and the work will continue to Huetter Road.  The nearly 4 ½ miles of Prairie Trail should be completed by August 3rd.

Work on the Centennial Trail begins Monday, August 6th.  It will start at Higgins Point at the east end of the trail, working west.  Through August 10th, work will be done on the section of trail from Higgins Point to Riverstone Park, which includes the preparation of all shoulder work on the Class 1 section of the trail.

Beginning August 13th, the section of trail from Higgins Point to Riverstone Park will be seal coated.

Also during the week of August 13th, trail patch and repair work between I-90/Northwest Boulevard and Highway 41 will be completed on the Centennial Trail.  During the week of August 20th, crews will be crack filling and seal coating this same stretch of trail.

Between August 27th and September 7th, the remainder of Centennial Trail from Highway 41 to the Idaho/Washington state line will be completed, barring any bad weather.

For our trail enthusiasts – please know that we’ll have spotters in front of and in back of the construction to remind people to slow down and ride on the shoulders.  For more information, please contact the Parks Department at 769-2252.
