In north Noblesville, the Little Chicago Road Trail is now open.
The 8-foot-wide, multi-use trail that runs from Ind. 38 to South Harbour’s Elderberry Road entrance features 2,700 feet of new trail and the widening of 2,500 feet of existing 4-foot sidewalk.
The city broke ground on the project Aug. 17.
The new trail connects to the city’s existing trail network and continues south along Hazel Dell Parkway to 146th Street.
“We are increasing Noblesville’s trail availability and connectivity, which accomplishes a goal of making the city more walkable,” Mayor John Ditslear said. “Making trail connections means residents have more options and longer stretches of trails to be outdoors and active.”
Little Chicago Road is the first of five trail-connector projects the city will complete this year. Other 8-foot wide trail projects under construction include:
- 460 feet on 156th Street, east of Summer Road.
- 405 feet on Cumberland Road, north of SMC Boulevard.
- 425 feet on Greenfield Avenue, west of Summer Road.
- Connecting a small gap on Stony Creek Trail, east of Regal Cinemas Noblesville 10.
