LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — A proposed 90-mile pedestrian and bike trail along the Wabash River in northern Indiana is moving deeper into the planning stages.

The nonprofit Wabash River Enhancement Corp. has used a $35,000 planning-to-plan grant to form a steering committee and create a master plan for the trail, which would run along or near the river in Warren, Fountain, Tippecanoe, Carroll and Cass counties.

The Journal & Courier reports that project planners are now on schedule to have a final report, work plan, project schedule and cost estimate submitted this month to both the nonprofit and the Wabash Heartland Innovation Network, which provided the grant money.

Stan Lambert is the executive director of the Wabash River Enhancement Corp. He says the planning work is "a very exciting project and an extensive project."
