The town of Frisco is inviting the community out to the Frisco Bay Marina on April 4 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. for a Touch-a-Truck event.

Kids and adults alike will get a chance to touch and climb inside some heavy-duty equipment being used as part of the “Big Dig” project — an excavation of 85,000 cubic yards of dirt out of the lakebed — and familiarize themselves with the details of the project. Contractors with Schofield Excavation and Columbine Hills Concrete will have staff on hand to talk about the equipment and how it functions. Free cookies and hot chocolate will also be served.

The Big Dig is the first project of the town’s Frisco Bay Marina Master Plan, meant to improve navigation, lengthen the boating season and expand recreational facilities at the marina. Construction at the marina this spring will also include the relocation of a new and improved boat ramp, an expanded beach area and new sidewalks to increase pedestrian access.
