Wilbur Wright Trail Closed for Maintenance
Healthy Communities of Henry County and the Henry County Commissioners would like to inform all of our trail users that the Wilbur Wright Trail is undergoing a beautification project to remove rail ties in spring 2015. Due to the presence of heavy equipment and trucks on or near the trail during these activities, the Wilbur Wright Trail will be closed at the Garner Street entrance north to the rail line overpass. The removal activities will begin March 9, 2015 and be complete by May 11, 2015. This schedule is tentative and may change based on work activities progression. During this time, barricades will be in place to ensure the public does not enter the construction zone. If you have any questions regarding these activities, please call Mr. Jeff Ray, Trail Coordinator, Healthy Communities of Henry County, at 765-524-1753.
During field activities, the Trail will be CLOSED to the public at the Garner Street entrance north to the railroad overpass. The Trail will be open from the Henry County YMCA Trailhead to Garner Street, a distance of 0.6 miles. The Trail will also be open from SR 103 Trailhead to the rail overpass, a distance of 0.95 miles. Future details will posted on our Facebook page – Healthy Communities of Henry County. We are sorry for this inconvenience, but the safety of the public is our # 1 concern.
