This Friday, August 8, 2014, Lumos & Associates will be part of the celebration as the Town of Truckee opens the most recent phase of the Legacy Trail to Glenshire Drive.
Lumos & Associates have been a part of the Legacy Trail for well over a decade working with the Town of Truckee to plan and design several different trails, including three phases of the Truckee River Legacy Trail and the Brockway Road Trail.
In 2011 the Town selected Lumos to perform an alignment alternative analysis and preliminary design for two additional trail segments, totaling over three miles. The project, known as the Tahoe Donner to Downtown Recreational Trail, consists of an east-west trail connecting Northwoods Boulevard to Pioneer Trail and a north-south trail connecting Mougle Lane to Bridge Street. The scope of work included baseline environmental and cultural studies, and Lumos included JBR Environmental and Far Western Anthropological Research Group on our team to cover these tasks.
Now that the bridge spanning Martis Creek is complete, Lumos & Associates is bringing Phase 3B to completion.
Lumos and JBR Environmental provided baseline botanical and biological resource studies, wetland delineations, basemapping, alternatives analysis, preliminary design, and a preliminary design report for nearly three miles of recreational trail. Lumos provided final design and bid documents for Phase 3B which includes more than 11,000 feet of trail over varied terrain including steep side slopes, dense trees and Martis Creek.
There was involvement from multiple agencies, including the Town of Truckee, the Truckee-Tahoe Sanitation Agency, the Truckee Sanitation District, Caltrans, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board. Construction started in the fall of 2013.
The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on August 8 is scheduled at 4 p.m. at Legacy Trail off Glenshire Drive by the Devonshire Monument sign. Bike ride and community celebration to follow.
