In April of 2013 the City of Lennox was awarded $490,000 in grant money to construct a bike trail along Highway 44 from Blaine Street to Highway 17. The project consists of constructing the trail within the north ditch of the highway. Improvements to culverts and intersections are proposed to accommodate the trail. 3D Digging and Trucking is the contractor for the project. Currently all culverts are in place, dirt work is approximately 75% complete, and concrete work is complete from Elm Street to Hwy 17. The contract completion date is September 14th, however, the contractor has experienced delays due to the weather and is expected to exceed this date. The contractor plans to have the project complete toward the end of September pending weather conditions.
