PRAIRIE CREEK RESERVOIR TRAILS
DELAWARE COUNTY SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT
FLR was hired by the City of Muncie through the Rails to Trails program with the IDNR that included the permitting, design, and construction of 0.85 miles of multi-use ADA compliant trail and 4 miles of mountain bike trails at Prairie Creek Reservoir. Fund procurement for the project was initiated and executed by FLR which secured grant funding from the DNR Rails to Trails program and local foundations, and also coordinated local multi-agency partnership and in-kind match.

The project site was identified by FLR regional watershed planning efforts and validated for selection through regional conservation and recreation strategic planning GIS analysis. FLR has permitted, designed, surveyed and engineered the project from concept to construction documentation (mountain bike routing assisted by a local advocacy group) and in winter of 2013, FLR will begin construction.

Roughly 300’ of trail will be built on a newly created embankment between a county road and the Prairie Creek Reservoir. Building this embankment includes implementation of geolifts and live staking to stabilize the embankment. The geolifts and live stakes will over time protect the embankment from wave action and ensure the trail does not erode into the reservoir.
