Canyon Rim Trail Phase 3 Design

Extension of the Canyon Rim Trail from Knecht Street to the 20th Street Extension.

The Canyon Rim Trail is a 10’ wide multi-use asphalt trail that begins near Camino Entrada and runs along Los Alamos Canyon to the west. Currently it ends at Knecht Street with an on-street connection. The project would extend this trail to the 20th Street Extension where it will meet up with an already constructed 10’ wide concrete trail connection to the Trinity Drive/20th Street intersection. This trail extension is part of the “High Priority Corridor” discussed within the 2017 Bicycle Transportation Plan approved by County Council.

Project Budget: 1.3 Million

Tentative Project Schedule:

Easement/Parcel Acquisition Completion: Fall 2018

Final Design: Spring 2019

Construction: 2019 – 2020

Fire Station 3 Bunkroom and Roof Improvements

Fire Station 3 was opened in 2008 and was constructed with an overhead air conditioning and radiant floor heating system.  Over time, fire department staff have noted that these separate systems compete and do not maintain adequate comfort levels.

  • Modification of HVAC System
  • Removal and replace of drop ceiling in bunkrooms
  • Add thermostats to bunkrooms
  • Add Exterior Insulation Finish System to exterior bunkroom walls
  • Replace windows in bunkroom
  • Replace the Thermoplastic Polyolefin roof system over the living areas
  • Remove the equipment screen and replace with a railing system.
  • Add low voltage heating loops on the metal roof and inside new gutters and downspouts.

Work is expected to begin in September 2018 and Final Completion March 2019.
