On Friday, May 6, Wabash River Trail Inc. announced ambitious plans for a 33-mile multi-use river walk, connecting Wabash, Huntington and Peru.
Starting in August, the group will be breaking ground with Phase I Sub-Phase I, which will pave a path through Lagro from the east side of Kerr Lock to the end of Basin Street.
Eventually, Phase I will span 6.6 miles, connecting Lagro to Wabash.
However, little to no information has been released on the second and third phases of the three-phase project. That lack of information has landowners in one of those phases – the stretch from Wabash to Peru – quite concerned.
