Landscape Architecture Overview:
Wayfinding and Signage: RDG, teaming with CFS Engineers, developed a master plan that breaks the 120-mile trail into a series of interpretive rooms. Each room is based on an important theme in that region, whether it is historical significance, natural landform, or cultural identity. The master plan recommends a consistent sign aesthetic which can be customized for each “room,” essentially breaking the long trail into a series of smaller trails that can be “owned” by the surrounding community.
Signature Bridges: Four signature bridges have been proposed along the Flint Hills Nature Trail in order to draw attention to the trail, promote local economic development, and encourage people to ride the full length. These bridges are in the concept phase. Future phases of work will identify final materials, structural engineering needs, and final construction documents.
