The project included the furnishing of all materials, labor, equipment, tools, etc. unless otherwise specified, for the stream restoration of Third Fork Creek and new trail boardwalk between Martin Luther King, Jr. Parkway and Cardinal Drive. This work was done to protect water quality in the creek and to improve sections of the trail to make them less susceptible to damaging floods and sediment.
