The community of Jackson Heights has several access paths into the Mill Creek Ravine. Near the intersection of 42 Avenue and 46 Street, a granular path leads to a wooden staircase into the ravine. Due to the steep grade, water runs down the granular path when it rains, carrying gravel onto the staircase and creating a slip hazard.

Project Objectives 

  • Replace stairs and extend the stairs to the top of bank to meet the current City standards
  • Install benches, if required (to be decided during concept planning)
  • Improve safety for users
  • Follow recommended maximum number of steps between landings, with no more than 2 flights of stairs before a change of direction
  • Tie into the existing granular trail at bottom of stairs 
  • Tie into either the existing granular trail or concrete walkway at the top of the bank
  • Include consideration for erosion control within proximity of the stairs and beneath stairs
