Antelope Park and Rock Island Trail Project South Street to Calvert Street

Updated August 21, 2019

Scope of Work

This project includes repairs of the stair structure and bikeway, and installation of storm sewer along the Rock Island Trail from South Street to Calvert Street. Project benefits include eliminating standing water in low areas, reducing mud and ice on the trail for improved trail safety, and improved pedestrian school routes.

2019 construction will take place between Sheridan Boulevard and Calvert Street. Work includes bikeway repair, storm sewer installation and landscaping along the bikeway.

Access During Construction

The Rock Island Trail re-opened to pedestrians and cyclists on August 21, 2019. Short-term sidewalk closures will be needed in the project area to complete remaining repairs.

No vehicular traffic impacts are expected.


Construction began September 24, 2018. Wet weather in the fall caused delays and construction was suspended for the winter. Work resumed July 8, 2019, and the project is anticipated to be completed by September 2019.
