Document Description
DPR proposes to rehabilitate approximately 1.0 mile section of the Ossagon Trail by converting the current trail alignment from a road to a trail. The road would be converted to a trail by narrowing the existing road surface. Road embankment fill would be excavated and stabilized on the inboard edge of the cutbench. A narrow portion of the cutbench would be preserved to serve as the new trail bed. Trail structures such as drain lenses, drain dips, turnpikes, and one bridge would be installed along the converted trail to control erosion and provide a low-maintenance trail tread. Trail crew and equipment access to the site would be by way of the Newton B Drury Scenic Parkway located north of the Ossagon Trailhead. Because the original trail is currently a mountain biking route, the trail conversion would be designed for mountain biking and hiking.
