The Grand Stairway traversing Theodore Berry Way to Mehring Way incorporates a bike ramp. Both elements are Prairie Brown granite.
Granite's durability and aesthetics are why the city's parks department approved the material for many elements of a major renaissance project.
It was necessary to carefully set the stanchion without damaging the Grand Stairway's stainless steel railings.
The durability and permanence of granite will bring a long life to The Banks public area.
