NEW CITY PARK PATH PROJECT

NEW CITY PARK PATH PROJECT

Bishop’s Public Works Department has announced a new City Park Path Construction Project. Construction of a new paved path in the front of the Bishop City Park is expected to start in about two weeks and expected to take about three weeks to complete. Use the front part of the park including the restrooms will be affected during construction.

The path will be six feet wide and about 200 feet long and will extend from the bridge over the South Fork of Bishop Creek nearest to the Bishop Chamber of Commerce to the restrooms near the southwest corner of the pool. In addition, a new path to the pool will be constructed and a paved area will be provided for a planned bike-share facility, a drinking fountain, and a  kiosk.

Substantial funding for the $61,000 project comes through a Partnership to Improve Community Health or PICH grant from the Toiyabe Indian Health project. Toiyabe’s support for this project is essential to the project’s success. The contractor on the project is Clair Concrete of Bishop.
