Mill Creek MetroParks to Improve Lanterman’s Mill Parking Lot

Mill Creek MetroParks is commencing a project to rehabilitate the existing Lanterman’s Mill parking lot.  The project goals include improving pavement, curbing, and hiking trails, addressing stormwater by replacing conduit and enhancing natural habitat, and constructing a new concrete entrance plaza.

The project will replace existing asphalt curb with new concrete curb, as well as add an overlay of asphalt pavement.  An adjacent natural area will be graded and planted with native species to detain and treat stormwater for short periods of time.  Also, hiking trails will receive new aggregate and a new concrete entrance plaza will be constructed between the parking lot and existing asphalt trail.  Mill Creek MetroParks will cover 100% of the costs for the parking lot rehabilitation project.

Construction is scheduled to begin on Monday, May 2, 2016, with the project expected to be completed by the end of June.  While the Lantermans’ Mill parking lot will be closed throughout the duration of the project, Lanterman’s Mill will remain open following its normal schedule.  The Lanterman’s Mill overflow parking lot on East Park Drive will be open for use by all Lanterman’s Mill and Mill Creek Park visitors.
