COLUMBIA CITY â€” With bids recently being awarded by the Columbia City Park Board for the Blue River Trail extension project, construction is expected to start in no less than a few weeks.
â€śThe project will extend the trail eight tenths of a mile while opening up the park to citizens on the north side of the city,â€ť said Columbia City Park Director Mark Green.
Green said the extension will begin just south of the pond in Morshes Park, cross over the river and end near DeMoney Grimes Funeral Home.
Niblock Excavating Inc. will be in charge of the trail portion and Hamilton Hunter Builders was awarded the pedestrian bridge portion.
According to Green, the construction is expected to take place on the bridge and the trail concurrently.
