The City of Frederick Issues Carroll Creek Park Construction Bid

Frederick, MD -- The City of Frederick is pleased to announce the issuance of the Carroll Creek Park Phase II-Shared Use Path Construction Bid. The Carroll Creek Park Shared Use Path – Phase II Project consists of the construction of park improvements and multi-purpose pathways which are part of the 1.3 mile Carroll Creek Park Shared Use Path System.

CCP Phase II includes construction of pathways, planters, lighting, landscaping, park furniture, drinking fountains, public art, water features and stationary fountains, structural and architectural walls, drainage, electrical supply, and irrigation within the park along the pathways along with traffic control devices at selected intersections where streets cross the park and Carroll Creek.

In addition, the Shared Use Path construction completes the Path improvements from Bentz Street to E. Patrick Street, providing pedestrian and bike access to major government and private facilities including the Downtown Frederick Multi-Modal Center, Frederick County Courthouse, Frederick County Library, and numerous mixed-use buildings with residential, retail, and office spaces.

“The Board of Aldermen and I have unanimously supported this major capital project to complete the urban section of Carroll Creek Park through historic downtown Frederick because of its potential to be a major catalyst for economic development, job creation, tax revenue generation, and for its recreation and transportation merits,” stated Mayor McClement.

Funding for this project is provide through the City of Frederick Capital Improvement Program (CIP) budget, along with contributions from Frederick County, the State of Maryland, and adjacent property owners with major planned developments along the Park. A $3.0 million Transportation Enhancement Program (TEP) grant was awarded to the City for completion of the Shared Use Path portion of the project. Through the TEP grant, approvals from both the State Highway Administration and Federal Highway Administration were required prior to issuance of the construction bid. Those approvals were received in early January 2013.

According to Richard Griffin, director of economic development for the City, “A number of individuals and organizations deserve credit for their support and vision for this project including the Carroll Creek Task Force which oversaw the initial design concepts, the East Frederick Rising for their vision plan for the east side of downtown including this project, the Downtown Frederick Partnership for its continued involvement and leadership on this project and programming events along the park and the Ausherman Foundation for their grant and technical support during the design phase.”

The public investment in Carroll Creek Park Phase II will have a significant economic impact on Frederick. This project is the catalyst for more than $100 million in proposed new and renovated buildings, resulting in both new jobs and tax revenue for the City, County and State of Maryland. Development projects along this corridor include the Galleria, McCutcheon’s, Union Mills, McHenry’s, One Commerce Plaza and Monocacy Valley Canning.
