This has been a year of challenge, progress and growth for the Wasson Way! We’ve seen an incredible growth in the number of users on the trail. We’ve added amenities to improve their experience. And construction has begun on Phase Three, which will nearly double the length of the trail by year’s end.
Last fall we planted 63 trees along Phases One and Two. This was made possible through volunteers and generous support from donors like you. This fall, we will add over 60 more trees through a generous grant from MadTree Brewing’s “1% for the Planet” program.
When Phase Two opened last November we saw a steady increase in the number of users on the trail over the winter. The trail count exploded this spring as people sought safe, healthy outdoor activities during the pandemic.
In July we broke ground on Phase Three as the City and Prus Construction started building the section that will extend form Madison Road to Marburg Avenue. And yes, the Madison Road crossing will have a full, traffic-stopping pedestrian-activated signal! The construction of Phase Three and future phases is made possible through our participation in the CROWN Capital Campaign.
