Western Power Line Trail

Gilbert, Arizona

J2 was the prime consultant for this project and was responsible for the landscape architectural, irrigation, and civil engineering design of this multi-use trail and linear park project. This section of multi-use path runs west, following the banks of the Western Canal from Freestone Park at Lindsay Road and joins an existing path that connects to McQueen Park at Cooper Road. A linear park, celebrating the Town of Gilbert’s and Salt River Project’s historical partnership, is located in the heart of downtown Gilbert.

Services provided for this project included the evaluation of the proposed multi-use path site while working closely with the Arizona Department of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration, the Bureau of Reclamation, the State Historic Preservation Office, Salt River Project, and the Town of Gilbert to develop the path. J2 also coordinated with Arizona Public Service, Qwest, and COX on “under grounding” and/or relocations overhead utilities. J2 developed the linear park master plan to accommodate the Town’s desire for passive open space and water features that illustrated their historic tie to the water delivery where to buy cialis in usa system.

The true highlight of the project is the linear park nestled in the redeveloping Heritage District. In order to gain the area for the linear park, J2 worked with the Town and SRP to convert approximately 1200 linear feet of earthen channel to a piped system. The park consists of two major outdoor plaza areas, turf and tree lined paths, and four unique water features. Two water features stand on either side of Gilbert Road and act as a gateway into the downtown. At the center of each plaza is a distinctive water feature representing a tie to Gilbert’s agricultural past and tells the story of how SRP delivers water to the valley.
