Casey’s Pond Trail Project Completed

City-of-SteamboatThe City of Steamboat and Duckels Construction have finished installing a new concrete trail near the intersection of US Highway 40 and Walton Creek Road, near Casey’s Pond. Construction started in late April of this year and finished on time and under budget.  A formal Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will be held Monday afternoon at 4 on the trail.  In 2010 the City was awarded a grant by the Federal Highway Administration through the Colorado Department of Transportation for designing and constructing a new concrete trail around the perimeter of Casey’s Pond, known as the Casey’s Pond trail project.  The Casey’s Pond trail project consists of a new 400 foot segment of concrete trail adjacent to Walton Creek Road, and the replacement of a seriously degraded asphalt trail along Highway 40 with a 650 foot concrete trail. The project enables pedestrians and bicyclists to safely commute between trails in the mountain area and make connections to the Owl Hoot Trail, Pine Grove Road and Highway 40 corridors, and will enhance bicycle and pedestrian facilities.
