Background

The city of Aurora took on this project to provide bicycle and pedestrian connections between the Westerly Creek Trail, the Toll Gate Creek Trail and the Florida Station. This project developed and evaluated concepts for the trail connector and then carried the selected elements through final design and preparation of plans for construction. Public and stakeholder input was solicited throughout these project phases.
