Project Schedule and Design Process
Each of the three WEE segments is in a different stage of design. The design process is typically measured by percent completion and the typical milestones are 30% design, 65% design, and 100% design. Community participation takes place through 65% design. After 65% design, the project design is established and the design team focuses on producing the final construction documents needed for permitting and construction. Current project status:
East Extension: 30% Design
Poplar Trail Improvements: Preliminary Design
West Extension: 30-65% Design
It is critical that the communities who will benefit from the WEE are actively involved in the design process. There are multiple ways to participate:
Do you live in a community directly adjacent to the trail? Help us organize a presentation to your community! Please email email@example.com to start the discussion
Do you want to have a more active role in the design process? Please join our WEE Advisory Committee which will meet regularly to review the design progress. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information
There will be public events for a citywide audience scheduled at major milestones to share design progress. These events may be in-person or virtual.
