Silver Creek Landing and Walkway

HWC provided survey, design, and construction services for the new Silver Creek Landing and Walkway facilities. Historically a popular gathering spot for over 100 years, the project provides additional safety for existing area users through bank stabilization. Providing connectivity between the trailhead on Providence Way and the Ohio River Greenway near the Loop Island Wetland Park, the approximate half-mile, shared-use concrete walkway opens accessibility to the waterway for all users. Located along the existing Ohio River levee, the project provides safe access for various uses including the new kayak/canoe launch point and the overlook for Ohio River/Silver Creek scenic viewing.

Permits required included IDEM 401/USACOE 404, USACOE 408, IDNR Construction in Floodway, and IDEM CSGP.
