Scared Journalist - Scioto Trail Investigation

The Scioto Trail is currently incomplete. It's southern terminus is Frank Road (SR-104) and it ends at the Dublin Road Water Treatment Plant pictured above. Additional Scioto Trail picks up about 2 miles down SR-33 at Grandview Avenue and terminates for good 1 miles south of 5th Avenue on US-33. In map form, it looks like this:

The missing gap between Grandview Avenue and the Water Treatment Plant is a bummer. The good news is that the work is being planned and has been bid. Two bridges will be used to cross the Scioto. I was curious if any construction had begun so I went to the Water Treatment Plant.

At the stop sign I turned left and I saw this interesting trail heading back. I made it about 30 feed back to where there's another clearing and about 3 additional trails heading to multiple places. I am ashamed to admit it, but I chickened out because homeless people sometimes use these areas as sleeping grounds. Seeing as I didn't see any tractor markings in the ground or indication of recent construction mobilization, I can say that it's likely that no construction activities have commenced yet.

Maybe next time I'll be able to make it all the way to the river.
