By the fall of 2020, a new pedestrian bike trail will encircle the Bee Branch Detention Basin. The project is slated for construction this fall or next spring. A current trail exists on 16th Street behind the Kwik Stop, Fazoli’s, and Dairy Queen. A new looped segment will run south alongside Kerper Boulevard, travel west on E. 12th Street, skirt behind the solar farm and connect to the Sycamore Street Bridge and back to 16th Street. Another spur from the southwest corner will run south to the Intermodal Transportation Center and the Millwork District. We welcome more walking and biking options that allow that allow citizens to enjoy the wildlife of the Bee Branch Basin.
