LET'S BUILD OUR TRAIL
GET INVOLVED BY
We cut the ribbon for Phase 2. The Withrow High School marching band opened the celebration. It is so exciting to connect Evanston, Norwood, and Xavier to Hyde Park and Oakley for the first time since Interstate 71 was built 50 years ago. Despite the cold, we had over 300 people attend! There are so many people to thank… including all of the volunteers working very hard to improve our City. It was great to see the Norwood supporters join together with Cincinnati residents for the first time in 50 years. We are onto Phase 3…hello Wasson Road!
We officially open the second phase of the Wasson Way Trail on November 9th at 10am in Norwood. The address is 2200 Dana Avenue and parking will be located near Lexington, Elsmere, and Floral Avenue. Please join us for live music, free beverages, snacks, and prizes and bring the entire family. We look forward to seeing you there and celebrating 1.2 miles of completed trail!
Phase 2 construction starts in April. This section will start at the end of Phase 1 near Tamarack Avenue, go west across I-71, reaching Montgomery Road near Xavier University. It will transform Wasson Way into a true transportation route, bridging the divide between Xavier, Norwood, Evanston, Hyde Park and Oakley created over 50 years ago by I-71.
We are excited to announce that the first phase of Wasson Way is now open to the public. Our ribbon cutting event was a huge success and brought out so much community support. We want to thank everyone who attended and continues to support our vision. View the link below to get an overview of the phase 1 map and design.
