Big-4 Rail Trail Extension

North and South Extension

The Town of Zionsville is extending the Big-4 Rail Trail in two directions: south to Zionsville Road and north from Heritage Trail Park to the common boundary with Whitestown. 

Much momentum has been made in recent years. The construction project replacing the Starkey Avenue bridge is expected to be complete in the spring of 2022, along with the paving and widening of the southern portion of the Rail Trail which will lead into Overley-Worman Park. A trailhead will be added to Zionsville Road.

Widening and Improvement Project

The Parks Department will bid out the Rail Trail widening, southern trailhead and northern expansion project in the spring of 2022.

The widening and improvement project will repair and widen the existing Rail Trail (from Heritage Trail Park south to Starkey Avenue). Closures will be completed in phases to allow Rail Trail use throughout the project.

The widening will create a uniform 12’ wide trail with a 3’ soft shoulder on each side (for runners).
