FREDERICK, Md. - Phase II of the highly anticipated Carroll Creek Linear Park is making positive strides, according to the Frederick Parks and Recreation Department.

"We got a little bit of a late start but I will say right now that we've made some really good time in the month of July. I mean we've made a lot of progress in just July and I hope that continues on through," said Roelkey Myers, Deputy Director for the Frederick Parks and Recreation Department.

The city has started on several parts of the 18-month project including the entry feature that will appear on Bentz Street, path work on the south side of the creek, and a galleria fountain that will appear between East Street and the Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center.

City officials also say they have cut some financial costs on the project that is estimated to cost $15.8 million.

"Money-wise we're doing real well. We've actually made some changes and they're has been some cost savings with some of the changes we made," said Myers. "We made the changes not primarily for the money savings, we just think its going to be a better product and its going to be easier to maintain."
