Description of Project: Parsons, Cunningham & Shartle Engineers surveyed, designed, provided right of way engineering, construction cost estimate and construction observation for the trail/sidewalk project from Ellis Park to Meadow Drive in Danville, IN. This handicap compliant trail/sidewalk connected several neighborhoods to Ellis Park as well as access to Hendricks Regional Hospital, Sheltering Wings and the Hendricks County Senior Center. The trail/sidewalk meandered generally parallel with CR50N/Sycamore Lane to miss major trees and other topographic features so as to enhance the pleasure of this walking trip experience. Timber was chosen as the most environmentally suitable type of material for a pedestrian bridge which crosses a tributary to the Danville Conservation Club. The design also took special measures to minimize the land acquisition activities, negative impacts to adjacent properties, impacts to surface drainage and utility relocation or conflicts.
