New Pump Track

Penn Forest Township wished to install a pump track for bikes, scooters, and skateboards in the wooded area of Penn Forest Park, nestled into the existing landscape and trees. As Municipal Engineer, Isett was contracted to assist the Township in completing plans and specifications for the new pump track at the park. The track, which is friendly for beginners, includes various small hills and turns that riders navigate using momentum to generate speed around the track. In addition to bike riders, the layout is also ideal for scooters, skateboards, and in-line skates.

With help from Isett’s Landscape Architecture Department, work included Municipal Engineering services to update previously prepared construction documents to identify track location, general layout, and site features; meeting with the pump track designer (DirtSculpt) to review the design and layout of the site; grading for construction of the new track; erosion & sedimentation controls; and design of a seating/viewing areas.

Isett also prepared final bid documents and coordinated bidding and contract award for the Township, as well as construction phase services including observation during construction. The new track was completed in November 2022.
