Project Title: Drake Harbor Trail Improvements Final Phase

This trail renovation project from asphalt to concrete is in progress. This trail renovation consists of 1,800 feet connecting from Drake Harbor (downtown revitalization known as the 1800s Steam Boat Landing) to the 1904 Joe Dice Suspension Bridge (swinging bridge listed on the historic register) and the Highway 7 bicycle lanes. Construction is underway for the 10-foot-wide concrete trail and includes the addition of light stands. Concrete was proposed due to the 25-year life expectancy, and adding  lights will increase usage at night. The lights chosen are used throughout the trail system in Warsaw for continuity. This grant project will improve the livability in Warsaw. The project was completed in 2015.
