UPDATE 2/12/21: The Briarcliff Greenway Trail Design
KC Parks has awarded Mega KC the design and build contract for the Briarcliff Greenway Trail. The concerns of the neighborhood have been heard and are being considered as the project moves through the design process. The trail characteristics and details are developing into a functional trail that will preserve the surrounding habitat and site amenities. Trail width is being reduced to 6 feet and trail color will be tinted to blend in with the surrounding landscape.
Ninety percent of the design will be complete by early March. The project is on schedule to break ground in mid-March with a target completion of July 31, 2021.
Where the conditions allow, an elevated boardwalk will be used instead of concrete to minimize any disruption to the native plants. The trail layout avoids trees and extensive grading where possible. The trail design provides a minimum 30’ buffer between the private property and the trail. Construction limit will be a 15 feet wide corridor. The trail will meet ADA requirements for accessibility.
UPDATE 8/13/20: The Briarcliff Greenway Trail Project is currently advertised for a bid opening on September 2, 2020.
UPDATE 7/29/20: The Parks Department received six bids for the Briarcliff Trail project. All bids were rejected. The project will be repackaged and advertised for new bids.
UPDATE 5/28/20: The Briarcliff Greenway Trail has been advertised for construction bids to be opened on June 17, 2020.
UPDATE 4/30/20: Survey and preliminary design is complete. Final adjustments to construction plans for bidding are in progress.
