Veterans Trail Phase 3

The City has entered into a contract with Michael Baker International for the design of Veterans Trail Phase 3. This project is a section of the multi-phase trail that is part of the Connectivity Plan, the Master Park Plan, and the proposed Village of Boston Heights to Hudson trail. The phases are not being completed in numerical order due to being in different stages of planning and availability of funding. For information about the other stages of Veterans Trail, take a look at the project story map.

Current Project Updates:

  • Design is nearing completion. Construction is expected to begin in 2019
The purpose of this trail is to provide safe access to the lengths of Hudson via walking or biking and to provide a connection to surrounding community trails to better connect Northeast Ohio. It is also a new way to bring people downtown Hudson to enjoy the amenities while passing through. When complete, the southern end of the trail will connect to the Summit County Metro Parks Bike and Hike trail.

The City is funding the design portion of the Phase 3 project, and has received a $500,000 grant from Akron Metropolitan Area Transportation Study to go towards construction of the project. The estimated cost of this project is $1.45 million. The project is currently in the design phase. Construction is expected to begin in 2019.
