Each summer, the city annually rehabilitates and overlays existing trails to extend the life of the pavement.
Reconstruction and Rehabilitation
- Reclaim existing pavement and lay new pavement.
- Includes reconstruction of pedestrian curb ramps to comply with the city's ADA Transition plan, which was adopted in 2018.
- Trails are identified by their age and condition.
At its June 18, 2019, meeting, the City Council approved moving the 2019 projects to 2020 due to higher-than-anticipated bids.
- Sealcoats selected trails by applying a layer of protective oil to the surface of the asphalt, which reduces the wear and tear from rain and ultraviolet light.
- Work typically begins in late summer and completed by the fall.
The annual trail sealcoating project was completed in mid-September. Impacted areas included:
- Shenandoah Road from Highway 101 to Fourth Avenue East and Fourth Avenue East from Shenandoah to Canterbury Road
- Vierling Drive between Marschall Road and Eagle Creek Boulevard
- Walking trails at Lake O'Dowd Park
- Walking trails at Prairie Bend Park
- Fuller Street and Koeper Avenue from 10th Avenue West to Shakopee High School
- Southbridge Open Space between Wakefield Circle and Berwick Circle
- Trails in Lions Park between Vierling Drive and 10th Avenue West
- Trails north and south of First Avenue East near Memorial Park, between Dangerfield's and just east of Sarazin Street.
