Trails grants help communities and recreation areas fund the creation and improvement of trails for walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. These grants help make communities more livable, create regional trails systems, and open up beautiful outdoor spaces for people to enjoy. WWRP is the largest source of trail support in the state of Washington.
Redevelopment included improvements to the former railroad bank between SE 43rd Way (Issaquah/Sammamish city limits) and SE 33rd Street. The project included removal of the existing gravel trail and construction of approximately 1.2 miles of 12-foot-wide paved trail with gravel shoulders, concrete driveway crossings, and improved sight lines. Other items of work completed include erosion control, grading, structural earth walls, fencing, stormwater conveyance system, signage, traffic control, trail amenity items, landscaping, wetland mitigation and construction of a plaza. Construction on this segment is currently complete, and the trail is open for use. Trail construction began January 2017 and was completed on January 17, 2018.
