Dexter-Chelsea Trail, Freer to Lima Center – The contractor placed the bridge and has completed work on the path grading, placing the stone base. They poured the concrete curb at Dexter-Chelsea Road and removed the existing sidewalks in the Chelsea Ridge Subdivision to build the connection to our path. The paving began on June 17 and is almost complete. In July, the contractor will finish the slope restoration work, pavement markings, fence and install the signs. Look for a trail opening later this summer!
