The Village of Williamsville engaged Wendel to develop a conceptual design and estimate of theoretical construction cost to extend and formalize a trail from Glen Avenue north along Ellicott Creek connecting to Amherst State Park.
A thorough walk of the site evaluating trail alignment options was conducted and digitized. A preferred alignment was identified that includes approximately 800 LF of elevated boardwalk. The elevated boardwalk section is required as this section of trail occurs within a floodplain along the creek and there were no other trail alignment options along the creek in this area.
With an agreed upon trail alignment and materials, an opinion of probable construction cost was developed enabling the Village of Williamsville to seek grants that would enable construction of the trail and boardwalk.
