Creating a mixed-use trail along Copper Creek in Jackson County required IIW to balance a varying design concepts, multiple funding sources and construction administrative tasks.
The result is an often-visited 1.83-mile stretch of trail that connects previously existing Copper Creek Trail in Preston to the Jackson County Trail, north of Spragueville. Visitors now stroll across two low water stream crossings and bridge crossings at Copper Creek and Deep Creek along this 10-foot wide granular surface trail.
Since funding came from multiple sources, IIW developed the separate, required conceptual layouts with cost estimates to obtain necessary funding. In addition, IIW provided engineering, surveying, permitting, preliminary and final trail and bridge design and right-of-way acquisition plats during the construction phases.
