Beech Grove Franciscan Greenway Trail – PHASE I

Beech Grove Franciscan Greenway Trail – PHASE I

The city of Beech Grove residents can now enjoy increased community connectivity through a fun and safe trail uniting schools, parks, and businesses throughout central Beech Grove! 

United completed Phase I of the Franciscan Trail, a 12-foot-wide, shared-use, asphalt pathway spanning  2.2 miles in length, beginning west of Churchman Avenue on Main Street and extending to Emerson Avenue and Hornet Avenue. 

Constructed using an HMA for sidewalk typical sections composed of 3.5 inches of HMA on six inches of compacted aggregate on Type 3 subgrade treatment, the majority of the trail follows along Lick Creek and also incorporates ADA compliant ramps and trail entrances. 

Four bridges were also included as part of the Franciscan Trail – Phase I project: three structures crossing Lick Creek and one structure crossing Beech Creek near the eastern construction limits.

United provided construction inspection services for this $3.5 million greenway trail. A key component which contributed to the trail’s success was United’s effective communication and coordination of construction activities  with the multiple property owners along the path.
