A consultant to the City, Transmap Corporation, will be inventorying some existing Sammamish public trails through Thursday. The data will be used in updating the City’s 2004 Trails, Bikeways, and Paths Plan that will begin in the fall. Depending on location, the data will be collected using a mobile Lidar unit mounted either on a small motorcycle or on a backpack. The Lidar data collected will include features such as trail width, slope, and surfacing. Questions or inquiries can be directed to Steven Chen, project manager for the inventory, at (425) 295-0564.
