Rails to Trails of Wayne County is now one step closer to closing the Heartland Trail gap thanks to a grant from the Ohio Department of Transportation. ODOT approved a grant of almost $1 million that will see the trail gap filled between Allen Avenue and Forrer Road. Upon completion the trail will allow cyclists to bike between Orrville and Clinton in Summit County. The 1.6 miles of added construction will connect the railroad station to Allen Avenue and Forrer Road to Marshallville. Construction of the stretch of trail is set to begin in 2024.
