Boardwalk Construction at Allen Water Station (Texas)
PermaTrak boardwalk construction at Allen Water Station in Allen, TX will be completely finished by the end of August. The walkway overlooks Allen’s historical Old Stone Dam and connects to a new steel truss bridge that extends over Cottonwood Creek, allowing visitors access to enjoy the scenic view of the waterway and surrounding trees.
The PermaTrak boardwalk construction at this unique location is part of an improvement phase on the Cottonwood Creek Hike & Bike Trail. Allen’s Community Development Corporation and Collin County grants funded the project.
PermaTrak boardwalk and pedestrian bridge designs typically feature softer curves using tapered treads. This unusual layout with sharp turns and more angular edges is a first, unlike any other PermaTrak boardwalk project to date.
