Greenway Trail Phase II ribbon cutting_1Monday afternoon Mayor Mark Senter, Plymouth Park Superintendent Mike Hite and members of the Park Board participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new pedestrian bridge on the Greenway Trail between Gill Park and River Park Square.

Greenway Trail Phase II ribbon cutting_2The Greenway Trail originates in Centennial Park and wanders along with Yellow River through Magnetic Park and Founders Park.  Phase II brings the trail through Gill Park with the new pedestrian bridge that ends at River Park Square.

Greenway Trail Phase II ribbon cutting_3In 2003 the City of Plymouth was granted a Transportation Enhancement Grant (TE Grant) for construction of phase I of the Greenway Trail.  In 2015 the city was awarded another TE Grant for phase II of the Greenway Trail and that grand opening was on Monday.

GreenwayTrail_Phase2Cost for phase II was $780,000 and SEH engineered the project and NIC (Northern Indiana Contracting) was the contractors.

The Greenway Trail promotes a healthy lifestyle, provides educational nature study, and is free and accessible to anyone at their convenience.  Eventually the city and park would like to expand the Greenway Trail even more…heading to Dixon Lake and making it a corridor to connect with Culver.
