This second phase of the trail system will connect to the existing coal ash path off of SR73 and travel under the highway, behind western campus at Miami University, travel under US27 and end at Peffer Park.
The total cost for this segment of trail is $2,355,155. This segment of the trail is funded in part, by a transportation alternative grant through the Ohio Kentucky Regional Council of Governments in the amount of $750,000. Miami University is contributing $700,000 and the City of Oxford is funding the remainder through the trail levy in the amount of $905,155.
This phase will allow for contiguous, off road travel, from Kelly Dr. over to Peffer Park. A distance of just over 3.5 miles.
Trail construction will begin October, 2019 with the clearing of the route. Over the winter months, 2 new bridges will be constructed off site. One to cross 4 mile creek at SR 73 and another to cross the creek at Peffer Park. This bridges will be installed in 2020.
The goal final completion date is fall 2020.
