MAH – East Park Hike & Bike Trail Phase II (PID #112585)

Virtual Public Open House:
Thank you for your interest in this project! The purpose of the Virtual Public Open House is to share project information and proposed improvements with the community and gather community input to assist in project decision-making. From September 18, 2021, through October 18, 2021, project information, including a presentation and project related materials, will be available on this website.

Project Overview:
The proposed East Park Hike & Bike Trail (Phase II) is a continuation of an enhancement project constructed by the MetroParks in 2019 to provide increased safety and connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists as they travel through the East Park Corridor. Phase I of the project (~750 LF) was completed as a component of a roadway resurfacing and an intersection improvement project (East Park Drive and U.S Route 62) completed by Mill Creek MetroParks and the City of Youngstown, respectively.

The successful construction of the East Park Hike & Bike Trail Phase II (~1700 LF of 8’ wide paved asphalt trail) will provide a great enhancement to the trail connectivity of Mill Creek Park, as the proposed trail is the final connection to complete a 7+ mile continuous trail system dedicated to pedestrian and bicyclist traffic that extends from US-224 in Boardman Township to Old Furnace Road in the City of Youngstown.
