NOBLESVILLE — The newest trail in Noblesville will run 1.4 miles on the east side of Morse Reservoir.

Ground was broken Friday on the project, known as the Levee Trail.

“This trail is especially important as it connects at least 7,000 northern Noblesville residents to existing trails leading to downtown,” said Mayor John Ditslear. “It also accomplishes one of the goals of the Noblesville NOW Capital Improvement Plan to improve pedestrian infrastructure.”

Noblesville has three major trail projects taking place in 2019 – Levee Trail, Midland Trace Trail Phase III and Riverwalk Phase IV – and will surpass 100 total miles of trail in the city this summer.

The Levee Trail runs from Morse Park and Beach north along the reservoir to Carrigan Road, with a portion of the trail running next to and on top of the levee from Dakota Drive to Carrigan Road.

An agreement with Citizens Energy has allowed this project to be built on its property, at a cost of about $600,000.
