Blaine Wetland Boardwalk

This public greenspace project serves the local community by connecting two large, residential neighborhoods in Blaine, Minnesota. The trail itself stretches  4,665  feet  through  a beautiful wetland  full of  abundant wildlife. The boardwalk  consists of two different types of walks;  one section  is supported by helical  piers  drilled into the ground, and the other  section is supported by pan feet. The project also includes  three gravel paths and a viewing platform that overlooks the natural wetland areas. The installation of the boardwalk panels initially took place while the wetland was frozen during the winter months so that heavy equipment could access the site.  Once the temperatures warmed up, each panel had to be driven out by motorized buggies one at time. This project was the first phase of many to come in this wetland area.
