Plans Made to Expand Safe Routes to School in Winamac

The Winamac Town Board, Safe Routes to School Task Force and Friends of the Panhandle Pathway are getting together to make the Panhandle Trail accessible to the residents of Winamac.

A plan is in the works to extend the Panhandle Pathway north to Winamac, connecting to Superior Street. This will allow the Pathway to connect to the Eastern Pulaski School Corporation. It will be paved with stone and later paved with asphalt. This will be a safe route to school for children and it will also be a safe walking and bike route for everyone.

The Winamac Safe Routes to School Task Force is also identifying other routes. Signs identifying safe routes will be posted along designated routes in the spring.
