The City of Fort Wayne and Fort Wayne Trails Inc. were recognized with two statewide awards for the trail network this afternoon in Indianapolis.
The city was awarded Outstanding Local Government, which recognizes success in developing, constructing, and managing trails. The not-for-profit Fort Wayne Trails was awarded Outstanding Trail Group for trail development and expanding Indiana's trail network.
In 2015, Fort Wayne Trails provided funding for a new section of the Pufferbelly Trail, and also designed and engineered an extension of the Covington Road Trail.
The judges noted the success of the city's trail system by including bike lanes and including trails with road projects.
