Amo-Coatesville Bike/Ped Trail Upgrade Construction Work

Spring-Summer 2018

The Hendricks County Parks bike/ped trail upgrade from Amo through Coatesville to the Putnam County line was basically completed in November 2017, though the contractor will be performing some corrections and repairs during Spring and summer of 2018. In the meantime, the newly paved bike/ped trail can be used. For the equestrian trail, some additional work is required before re-opening.
