Opening of a new trail section in Brownsburg



Brownsburg, Indiana – According to a news statement from the B&O Association, the ceremonial ribbon-cutting for the newest trail segment was held by the B&O Trail Association on Friday.

The newly constructed section, known as 5B, cost around $1.7 million to build and has a nine-foot-wide asphalt trail for walking and bicycling, an equestrian trail, and four traffic crossings.

In Hendricks County, the path extends from County Road 500 East to County Road 250 East.

“This is an exciting milestone for the B&O Trail Association in Hendricks County, and this is just the first of three long-awaited expansions both in Hendricks and Marion County,” said Jeff Smallwood, BOTA president. “We thank the Indiana Department of Natural Resources for making this possible by awarding us a $4.5 million NextLevel Trails grant in 2021. We are now one step closer to our long-term vision of a trail stretching from downtown Indianapolis to Montezuma, Indiana.”
