What is Happening on 8th Street?

You might have noticed a new, concrete greenway being constructed along the west side of Eighth Street on Taylor property extending from the Boyd Buildings and Grounds facilities north toward Reade Avenue. It is a regulation width trail that is intended for use by those with bicycles, inline skates, and other forms of recreation–as well as those running or trekking on foot.

Eventually, the trail may enable users to access the greater greenway system. For the near future, it will provide access to the Taylor campus without having to navigate the narrow roadway. Much of the labor for building the trail has been provided by volunteers. Taylor University has paid for the materials that make up the trail.
