Trumbull MetroParks approved for 4th phase funding for Greenway Trail

Tuesday, February 24, 2015


Fresh off the completion of Phase 3 of the Western Reserve Greenway hike and bike trail in the fall, the Trumbull County MetroParks Board has learned it has been approved for $2.4 million (80 percent funding) for Phase IV.

Phase IV, from Burton Street at the south end of Warren to the Niles Greenway Trail Head in downtown Niles, will complete the Trumbull County portion of the Lake To River Greenway and provide an uninterrupted trail from Ashtabula to Canfield.

When the entire greenway is complete, the trail will travel between Lake Erie and the Ohio River at East Liverpool.

Today, the Trumbull County commissioners are expected to authorize Zachary Svette, operations coordinator for the MetroParks, to submit a plan to the Ohio Department of Transportation giving it specific information about the project.
