Work on the final segment of the Ship Canal Trail is moving along. Toby Wonder sent us a couple photos of the progress last week along with a note:
Just thought I would drop you a couple pictures of the fresh new pavement they laid down on phase II of the ship canal trail today. I did not get a pic from the west side of 15th (under west Nickerson) but when I left work they only had about 15 to 20 feet left to pave. Not sure how much work they have left to do with signage and what not but it is looking good!
PS They are laying down a new top layer on Commodore Way (some of the worst pavement in town) also so in the near future it should be smooth sailing from the Fremont bridge all the way to the locks!

The trail is coming soon! Crews have now completed building all retaining walls for this new segment of the Ship Canal Trail, including the largest retaining wall alongside the Nickerson/15th Avenue West Ramp. Now weather becomes an important factor for paving of the trail – currently scheduled for mid October. Following paving, the remaining work is expected to take approximately three weeks to complete.
