University of Kentucky Coldstream Research Campus


Lexington, Kentucky


Coldstream Research Campus


Fall 2013




CDP was contracted by the University of Kentucky to develop a phased conceptual master plan and preliminary trail alignment for the Coldstream Research Campus.  The conceptual master plan will serve as a tool for Coldstream to assist their future implementation of a bio-infiltration swale for stormwater management as well as improved aesthetics.  The plan improves aesthetics by adding naturalized habitat and vegetation within the research campus and will also provide recreational access by connecting a short trail segment to the existing Legacy Trail.  The contract for the master plan was expanded to include the design for several wetlands that were originally part of the Cane Run stream corridor restoration project.  The wetlands will further contribute naturalized habitat, improve water quality, and provide interest for outdoor enthusiasts who visit Coldstream.
