Draper Bikeway 14

Yesterday was still halfway foggy in some areas. Naturally, it was more foggy around the lake.

They are finally making progress. This is a view down below the dam where, for the first time that I’ve seen, the crews are dropping a significant layer of gravel. The gravel is going on top of a mesh that should stabilize the soil. Somebody has decided that the soil here is very unstable. Of course, they still haven’t done anything at all for the creek crossing a ways off to right of this image, but it looks more likely in the next few weeks.

Farther around to the south end of the lake, above the dam to the east, this is the fresh asphalt they laid just recently. This links to the first layer of asphalt run through the woods along the old Westminster road bed.

After following that linking path down into the woods, I found that the paving team had gone quite a long ways north. This is all my first time seeing any of this since the work began. This was all very rough stuff last year.

Farther north along this newly paved section, we get a very nice view of the lake. This nice new stuff runs all the way up to SE 104th, vastly increasing the distance I get to ride on the half-finished bikeway.
