Funding arrangements in place for trail connecting Dyer's Central Park to Pennsy Greenway
Funding has been allocated to connect Dyer to the Region's bike trail network. The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) has funded a spur connecting the Pennsy Greenway in Schererville to Central Park in Dyer, in the coming years.
"We hope to have that completed within about four to five years," says NIRPC active transportation planner Mitch Barloga. "It's going to be a little tricky because that's railroad right of way, and dealing with the railroads is always a time-consuming process. And we hope we can get that moving and maybe even built sooner rather than later."
