Culverts installed on Broad Run Trail

On May 12, 2012 PWTSC volunteers reinforced the Broad Run Trail through Braemar by installing culverts to prevent the newly-laid stone dust from washing out in the rain. Park Authority staff had delivered the culverts to the site, and the twelve volunteers (including Mike DePue from the Park Authority) put them in. Over the winter months, Park Authority crews had improved the trail by placing crushed stone on the trail as a foundation and surfacing it with stone dust. Spring rains revealed locations where run-off concentrated and had begun to wash out the new trail surface. The culverts will help to prevent further washouts and keep the trail in good condition.
