Perrysburg Ribbon Cutting

The grand opening of a portion of a planned multi-use path in Perrysburg was celebrated with a ribbon cutting January 10. The new 10-foot-wide section connects to an existing path on the west side of the Maumee-Perrysburg Bridge (SR 25). The new section goes under the bridge and along the Maumee River bank to the parking lot in Orleans Park. It creates a safe bike and pedestrian connection with Ft. Meigs and Side Cut Metropark. This new paved path is the first phase of a multi-use trail that will eventually connect to Hood Park in downtown Perrysburg. Construction of the balance of the multi-use trail is expected in 2019. Eighty percent of the project was funded through the federal Transportation Enhancement (now called Alternatives) program.
