The Bloomingdale Trail is a planned elevated city park running 2.7 miles from Ashland to Ridgeway along Bloomingdale Avenue. It currently is an abandoned railroad. Community meetings have been held over the past several years to plan the future of the Bloomingdale Trail. Phase I (engineering and preliminary design) is complete, with final Phase II development plans underway. Construction is expected to begin in fall 2013. The project is on track for completion by fall of 2014. For more information on the Bloomingdale Trail, click on the links below, and check back here for updates.
