These projects involved the design of the bike path within Carson City’s Linear Park extending from Roop Street east to the proposed Carson City Freeway Corridor. Instigated by the Carson City Parks and Recreation Department, the Linear Bike Path was completed in 2001 and provides a more scenic and secure alternative for bicyclists and pedestrians in South Carson City. Manhard staff members (formerly Capital Engineering) provided the Parks and Recreation Department with alternative options investigation, preliminary and final designs and construction management services for all three (3) phases culminating in approximately 1-mile of multi-use pathway over a 4-year period. Additional tasks included concrete channel modifications, connection/crossing at existing streets, cost estimating, specifications preparation, boundary determination and topographic survey, construction staking, preparation of documentation to support a Special Use Permit, bridge hydraulic analysis, bid assistance, construction reviews and on-call engineering services as well as coordination with the Utilities Department to design a Reclaimed Water Line. The project involved several unique design components including the Saliman Road pathway bridge, a “refuge island” for the mid-block crossing on Saliman, retrofitting private subdivision drainage and decorative wall improvements, drainage improvements, cattle fencing and subgrade stabilization.
