The governor presented a check of almost $870,000 to the 933 Corridor Improvement Association in South Bend. The group will use the funding to build a mile of trail that will connect existing pedestrian trails all the way from Mishawaka, Indiana to Niles, Michigan.
Holcomb called the Next Level trails program a game changer for the state.
“It’s also a lifestyle changer in the sense that it’s promoting healthy living, it’s promoting safety, and then it promotes all of our pleasing natural beauty and assets,” he says.
The state has invested $24.9 million in the first round of Next Level Trails and expects to award more in a second round.
