*UPDATE* Public Meeting - November 14, 2017, 2PM: Ten-Mile Creek / UPT Extension Phase 2

UPDATE: November 14, 2017 -- The cycling community was well represented at the meeting today where the Lucas County Commissioners voted unanimously to approve the Drainage Improvement Project. While this project will prepare the path for the UPT Phase 2 expansion, further efforts will be needed to secure the funding for actual trail construction. Look for further updates as they develop! Thanks to everyone that attended the meeting today!

Why is this hearing important for cyclists (walkers and joggers)? While the project is focused on drainage improvements along Ten Mile Creek, Lucas County Engineering has partnered with Metroparks of Toledo to include right-of-way along the southern edge of the creek to extend the University Parks Trail (known as phase 2). Funding was just awarded to construct Phase 1 from King Road to Silica, Lucas County cleared that section earlier this year (see here). The U/P Trail extensions will ultimately take the trail to Sylvan Prairie Trail and beyond.

A public hearing will be held in the first floor Assembly Room of the Board of Lucas County Commissioners, One Government Center, Toledo, Ohio at 2:00PM on November 14, 2017 for the purpose of hearing comments related to this project.
