Juneau, Alaska (KINY) – The City and Borough of Juneau Parks and Recreation Department requests the public’s input on the Bonnie Brae Access Trail to Treadwell Ditch planning study.

The project team is conducting a follow-up public survey, open until Jan. 8, 2024, based on the public comments received in the summer of 2023.

The project team is also hosting a virtual open house on Thursday, Dec. 7, from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. via Microsoft Teams.

There will be short presentations at 5:00 and 6:00 p.m., and the rest of the time will be a chance to look at the site designs and chat with the project management team. (You may connect to Teams as a guest and do not need a Microsoft account to participate.)

On the project website, you will find updated timelines, project goals, and survey results, as well as several proposed site designs.

The City and Borough of Juneau, the US Forest Service, and Federal Highway Administration – Western Federal Lands Highway Division, are working together with the public to assess trail options and improvements that would enhance access to the Treadwell Ditch Trail and make it safer, as well as more environmentally friendly.

This reconstruction plan may include a parking lot, as well as other features to facilitate access from the Bonnie Brae subdivision area to the Treadwell Ditch Trail.

Please take the survey and join the virtual open house to provide your thoughts on the proposed sites for the Bonnie Brae Access Trail.
