A gravel bike trail will be installed along Jewett Road in Liberty Township in the spring. The trail will run from the roundabout at Jewett and Liberty roads to the railroad tracks and then beyond the tracks to the Derby Glen Farms subdivision.

When it arrives to a bicycle path alongside Jewett Highway, Liberty Township trustees decided that anything is greater than absolutely nothing.

Trustees on Aug. 16 approved $7,500 from the standard fund to create a gravel path alongside Jewett Street from the Derby Glen Farms subdivision to the railroad tracks and beyond the tracks to the roundabout at Jewett and Liberty roadways.

The work won’t be carried out until finally spring, but watching a young bicycle rider generating his way along Jewett to show up at a functionality at Liberty Center School was sufficient to influence trustee Shyra Eichhorn that the township needed to do a thing.

Inhabitants in the subdivisions alongside Jewett Street and cyclists who journey trails regionally have wanted a connector together with the increasingly busy road for yrs. Delays in funding and in solving the issue of crossing the railroad tracks just east of the Jewett-Liberty highway intersection have stymied any development.
