Waterloo aims to extend trail

February 16th, 2017

The town of Waterloo will apply for a state grant to help extend the Auburn-Waterloo Trail, town officials said Tuesday night.

The project would stretch the trail northward from the town limits to reach Walnut Street (C.R. 28), said Town Manager Tena Woenker.

The estimated cost for extending the trail is $251,000. The town aims to apply for a $200,000 grant from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, with Waterloo funds paying the remainder.

The Waterloo Town Council voted to employ A&Z Engineering to help with the grant application.

Built in the mid-1970s and popularly known as the “bikeway,” the trail runs along the east side of C.R. 427 between Auburn and Waterloo, passing DeKalb High School and DeKalb Middle School. Stretches of the trail were repaired last year with donated money, and a gazebo was added at a rest stop near the high school.
