Portions of Chippewa Inlet Trail are Closed for Wetland Restoration and Trail Reconstruction

Chippewa Inlet Trail is closed for a wetland restoration and trail reconstruction project between Wedgewood Road (State Route 162) and Chippewa Road. The project focuses on diverting water from the Chippewa Inlet through more than 4,000 feet of linear wetland to reduce nutrients and improve water quality north of Chippewa Lake. Portions of the trail will be permanently re-routed to accommodate the wetland restoration. The project will also improve sections of the popular walking and biking trail by making it more accessible during wet weather. The portions of the trail located north of Wedgewood Road through Buckeye Woods Park will remain open during construction.

Funding for the wetland construction project is provided by H2Ohio. Launched by Governor Mike DeWine in 2019, H2Ohio is a collaborative water quality effort to provide clean and safe water to Ohio. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Ohio Department of Agriculture, and Ohio Environmental Protection Agency each has a significant role in H2Ohio through the natural infrastructure of wetlands, the reduction in nutrient runoff, and increasing access to clean drinking water and quality sewer systems.
