WESTFIELD TRAILS REACH NEW MILESTONE

 

Westfield, IN – Residents of Westfield are now able to take a fully paved Monon all the way to State Road 32 at Quaker Park.

 

“I’m thankful to our public works department who worked hard to make sure this happened,” Mayor Andy Cook said. “Connectivity is very important to our community, and I look forward to enjoying the improved trail along with our residents.”

 

A large portion of the Monon had previously been unpaved (marked in green below), making for sometimes messy travel during periods of heavy rainfall. The new paving allows for less mess and increased accessibility from one area of the city to another. Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard traveled the trail from Indianapolis to Quaker Park earlier in the week.

 

When weather permits, minor work will be done to complete the project, including the pouring of concrete nodes. More substantial trail improvements are still to come: Westfield has received federal funds to construct a bridge for the Monon to cross SR 32, similar to what currently exists over 146th Street. Work will likely begin on that project in 2018.
