Plainfield Township - Rockford Trail

This week

Brenner Excavating made good progress removing top soil and grading out the route for the trail. Despite the rain, the crews stripped sod and top soil along Kuttshill Drive from Rogue River Avenue to Northedge Drive.


Next week

They plan to continue stripping top soil near Brewer Avenue and begin placing sand (if necessary) and gravel base for the trail along Kuttshill Drive.

This Week

Brenner Excavating mobilized to the site, and the trail was staked for them to start clearing. The few trees that needed to be removed have been taken down.

Brenner also met with representatives of Rockford Schools to help coordinate work during the busy drop off / pick up times.


Next Week

The contractor will start at Kuttshill Driver and Rogue River Avenue, clearing topsoil and grading for the pathway. At some point, additional crews will come to the project, starting at different locations to continu this process.


Construction Start Up!

Brenner Excavating will be on site on Monday, September 13 to begin work on the trail. They plan to start on the south end of Kuttshill Drive, near Rogue River Avenue, removing topsoil and grading out the path.

Progress Report

We anticipate that construction should be starting mid-September with completion yet this year by mid-November. Construction staking will be completed prior to construction. If you have any questions or comments regarding the path, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
