The Door County Parks Department is on schedule with all projects this summer. One project was the Ahnapee State Trail that runs from Kewaunee to Sturgeon Bay received a much-needed resurfacing on a 5.2-mile stretch between Forestville and Sturgeon Bay. The Door County Highway Department laid down one-to-three inches of quarry wash to stabilize the trail while re-establishing the ten-foot width in areas where it had shrunk. Parks Director Burke Pinney says the Ahnapee Trail will have more work done later this summer.
According to Pinney, the job of brushing the trail might be limited due to the 50 percent increase cost of the rental equipment.
Other completed projects include paving the road into Ellison Bluff County Park to accommodate bike riders. The Forestville Dam had a new launch dock installed last week and a new parking lot earlier this month. The new docks for George K. Pinney Park, which were paid for with grants and user fees, are expected to be installed in the next three to five weeks.
