At the recent Annual Membership meeting, City of Frederick Engineer Tim Davis spoke of the plan to place a tunnel under the south bound ramps of Route 15. This work is part of the 27 mile shared use path and will link Baker and Waterford parks. The project is currently in the design phase with about 60% of the design documentation complete. Construction begins in spring of 2015 and will be complete in late summer of early fall of 2015.

Tim discussed many of the project amenities under consideration including “green” path surface materials, way-finding signage, crime prevention through environmental design, conformity to ADAm solar lighting in the tunnel, and native species for landscape restorations.
