Mill Creek Ravine Trail Realignment - South 76 Avenue
Engagement has concluded
Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Email this linkabout 1 month agoCLOSED: This brainstormer has concluded.
The Mill Creek Realignment Plan includes connecting two trails - a paved shared-use path located higher up in the ravine and a gravel trail below it. The lower trail has been closed to the public since Summer 2020.Ravine Userabout 1 month ago
Need off leash access immediately south of 76 ave
Diverting dog traffic to the paved path is unsafe. Cyclists travel on that path at high speeds. Even on-leash dogs are unpredictable and will get in cyclists' way. Many people will not follow the on-leash rule on the paved path, making matters worse. The City should either fix the embankment or build a new path from the existing trailhead.40Kate Labout 1 month ago
Please cancel this unnecessary project!
I recognize that the CoE probably settled on this new trail proposal because it seemed like the most cost effective solution. But the most cost effective solution of all would be to NOT SPEND MONEY ON A REDUNDANT TRAIL!!! As many fellow Mill Creek trail users have already pointed out, an identical trail ALREADY EXISTS just a short distance away from the new proposed trail location. I can only hope that, somehow, the professionals involved in this project were simply unaware of the existing off-ramp from the gravel trail to the paved trail, because wow... I mean, this is like me deciding to build a second front door to my house five feet to the left of my existing front door. The City is notorious for these kinds of foolish expenditures, but during a pandemic? When City finances are especially tight? This is just insulting to tax payers. My suggestion would be to cancel this moot project and just leave well enough alone until you can afford a proper solution that actually improves the existing trail system (and maybe fire whoever planned and approved that futile retaining wall). I think the Mill Creek Ravine would be much better served if the money earmarked for this project could be diverted to helping solve the cause of the awful sewer smell further up the trail, north of 76 Ave. Thank you.1RobMillCreekabout 1 month ago
Abandon Old Trail
Closing the old trail is logical BUT - if it isn't made impassible, it will continue to be used. If the old trail collapse isn't repaired, the erosion will continue. Make a revised gravel trail adjacent to the paved trail, otherwise the traffic between walkers, dogs and bikes will become a serious issue.4C. A.about 1 month ago
Naturalize the gravel path to an unmaintained single track and use the already existing on-ramp to the upper trail by the bridge.
While I would always be sad to see off leash options lessened, that area does seem unstable. You will still need to reinforce that bend or it will just continue to erode away until it meets the main paved path. If you want people to stop using the lower trail you'll need to re-naturalize it, then a simple unmaintained single track could connect the lower pathway for those who want that, (like me, I will always choose single-track when it's available, and I accept the risks.) As was already mentioned, it's probably safest to have the on-ramp from gravel trail to paved be back at the bridge (already existing) area, to reduce on ramps. People definitely run and ride at speed there and it's narrow/low visibility so having a blind intersection might lead to trouble.12garneau12about 1 month ago
Please construct proper permanent fix to replace the 'temporary' fix that failed. The current north section is well used and well loved!
Fix Existing Trail Properly - please!30
