Eastside Trail Bridge

eastside-trail-bridge-hostelThe Eastside Trail Bridge spans the intermittent creek just east of the Hostel.  As part of this bridge project, we also added about 690 feet of new Trail to allow walkers, bicyclists, and runners to remain along the scenic lakefront and away from the sidewalk along the increasingly busy street, Lakeshore Boulevard.

The Boardwalk opened on June 7, 2014, and we are seeing a large increase in the number of  Butler Trail users in that area.

The contractors included the general contractor Balfour Beatty,  Contech for the bridge and Big Red Dog for the civil engineering.

This project was completed in 2015.
