Big Lake Construction Status
Saturday I made my "Tour de Bluffs". Sunny, upper 60s to lower 70s. Some wind from the North.
Dirt moving is progressing where Playground Park was. That is just across the Bob Bridge from Omaha.
Riding on North on the Iowa Riverfront Trail, I stopped at Big Lake Park for a rest stop and see what has been doing. As you can see in the top/left photo, there is a new, rock retaining wall around the lake. Folks are already fishing from the ramp. Construction continues. New concrete trail (some just poured) looks to be encircling the lake. There's a new fishing/viewing path on the East side of the lake (lower/right photo).
Biked over the the North lake to check on the new boardwalk. No progress there.
Ended back at Xtreme Wheels. Nice ride on the hybrid (and no flat!).
