FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- The mayor and local trail advocates broke ground on the next portion of the Pufferbelly trail between State Boulevard and Fourth Street.
The trail will connect around 1200 people to 50 businesses including Science Central. Pufferbelly is part of a four trail project in the Summit City.
They're all a part of the 81-mile Poka-Bache Connector, which stretches from Bluffton to Angola.
"Now that we have just about a hundred miles, maybe a little over a hundred miles of trails, that in and of itself speaks volumes about our community," said Mayor Tom Henry.
