As part of the Connectivity Plan and the proposed Village of Boston Heights to Hudson Trail, the City of Hudson and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources considered construction of a portion of the Heights to Hudson Trail which would consist of a 10-foot wide asphalt path.The trail was originally planned for construction in 2017-2018.
Proposed trail alignment:
Hines Hill Rd. and W. Prospect St. intersection, to:
W. Propsect St. and Morse Rd.,
Ending at the intersection of Morse Rd. and Owen Brown.
We are not moving forward with this project at this time.
The Veterans Trail Phase 2 has been put on hold indefinitely based on several issues, including;
The fast-tracking of the Downtown Phase II project will put the trail construction in conflict with Downtown Phase II construction.
Downtown Phase II plans most likely will include the realignment of a portion of Morse Road from Prospect Street to Owen Brown Street. Therefore, the City does not want to remove a newly construct trail.
The Ohio Turnpike Commission has no plans to widen the bridge over the Ohio Turnpike, and the re-striping option on the bridge was not recommended by staff due to safety concerns for pedestrians and cyclists traveling the route. Staff presented these design concerns to City Council and the Park Board in August, 2016.
The City will investigate alternate routes to construct in the near future.
