Karst Farm Greenway Nearly Complete

25 Oct

IMG_0084Phase I of the Karst Farm Greenway — a project that has been eight years (!!) in the making — is finally nearing completion. The Karst Farm Greenway forms the north-south backbone of Monroe County’s active transportation network.

I’ve provided some background about the greenway previously here. Phase I runs from Karst Farm Park at the south to Vernal Pike at the north, where it joins the trail that connects to the new northwest YMCA. The Karst Farm Greenway connects to the park, the YMCA, Ivy Tech, the Indiana Center for the Life Sciences, and Highland Park and Grandview schools.

Although some of the finishes on the greenway (signage, etc.) won’t be complete, final surfacing is expected to be completed this Monday.

Here are a few snapshots I took on the Greenway on Thursday.

Phase IIA of the project, which is also fully funded, extends the trail north to Loesch Road. Phase IIB of the project, which is not yet funded, extends the project north all of the way to Ellettsville.
