Construction continues this year on the Towpath Trail, a multi-use pedestrian/bicycle pathway connecting Aboite Township with the Fort Wayne and New Haven Rivergreenway system.
Tuesday, January 20 two bridges were put in place by Primco, 7107 Smith Road, Fort Wayne, IN.
According to Primco Estimator, Joe Thomas, the two new bridges were constructed in Minnesota by Contech Steel Bridge and trucked to their prospective placements, one near Smith and Engle Roads and the other near the soccer fields off of Ardmore Avenue. The bridges span 65 feet at Smith and 73 feet at Ardmore with wooden treads.
The Towpath Trail begins in Rockhill Park and will extend from Engle Road to West Jefferson Boulevard to a yet to be determined cross point. The trail will ultimately connect to the trail system being developed by Aboite New Trails. The trail follows the old Wabash and Erie Canal towpath, which was the dirt path along the canal used by mules to tow boats.
