tranquility park excavation

From City of Omaha:

Just wanted to inform you of some dirt removal just to the north of the Koch Tennis Center. A contractor will begin removing dirt within the next week or two for a Public Works project. Approximately 15,000 CY of dirt will be removed. Surveyors will be flagging the limits of the cut so we have a better idea of the area being disturbed as well as how the dirt removal will affect any mountain bike trails in the area. Please let all bike riders to the trails know that this work will be starting up shortly. The excavation work should be completed by April, weather and site conditions permitting.

Once the limits have been flag we can see if any adjustments to any of the trails in this area are needed. Please let me know if you see anything that needs to be addressed. Thanks.

Dennis, park planner

So Tranquility trail users, be aware of dump trucks and heavy equipment around/crossing the South Hill Descent and South Creek Flats. Please stay out of their blind spots, give them space and a friendly wave!
