Quarry Phase 1 Construction Begins

Last week the quarry trail was closed for a few days so that a temporary trail could be installed. Safety fencing has also been installed and some of the heavy equipment is in place. Last week, workers also removed the old fencing, cleared some of the trees/brush, and placed some of the new bolders along the edge of a new fishing plaza.

This is Phase 1 of a multi-phase project. It will include updated paths, a boardwalk along the water, a fishing pier, and disabled parking spots. This is partially funded by a $125K grant.

The city was also awarded a second grant for $276K to help pay for “phase 2” of the project, which will include a new pavilion and a system to improve the water quality of the quarry (allowing it to be stocked for fishing). Bids for this work will be issued in 2021 and work may start later in the year.
