Abstract
This senior civil engineering design project is focused on upgrading the existing Mountain Bike Skills Park at Montana Technical University in Butte, MT. Given the lack of existing data, this project poses a particular challenge to develop baseline surfaces for design. This project seeks to create a design that provides an excellent opportunity for outdoor recreation and exercise. We will include in our presentation a summary of all aspects of our project, including how we gathered topographic/survey data and property boundary information, designed a mountain bike course incorporating all skill levels, created engineering details for course features, improved signage, provided area-wide drawings that show connections or potential connections of other nearby biking opportunities, and created construction drawings and technical specifications for the proposed park upgrades.
