Nickel Plate Trail Update
We are excited to open the downtown portion of the trail, including the tunnel underneath 116th Street, this spring! As a reminder, paving has been completed on the portions of the trail between 146th Street and North Street, and South Street to 106th Street.
The City of Fishers has recently applied for funding, through the Next Level Trail Grant, to pave the trail section from 96th Street to 106th Street, and to provide funding for Indianapolis and Noblesville to complete their segments. We expect to receive notice of the status of that application this spring. Learn more at playfishers.com/NickelPlateTrail.
