The Skyline Trail and Inner Belt Loop groundbreaking celebrations have been posponed to Tuesday, March 7 at 1 pm.
We hope you will join us for the groundbreaking celebration of the Skyline Trail at 1 pm, and an hour later, the exciting Inner Belt Loop at 2 pm. The Inner Belt Loop will connect the Highway 3 to the Heights, with a trail alongside it!
According to the City of Billings, both projects are expected to be completed and ready for their grand debut with a ribbon- cutting ceremony by the end of this construction season..
It is through $120,000 in donations from our generous members that Billings TrailNet was able to provide $346,000 for engineering, building Phase 1 in 2019 (to Zimmerman Place), and matching funds for the City’s BUILD grant. Our members were key in making the Skyline Trail a reality.
Thank you members, donors and all who have worked so hard to bring about the Skyline Trail and Inner Belt Loop connections.
To access the event, park along Highway 3 across from the airport water tower.
The Inner Belt Loop groundbreaking will take place one hour later at 2 p.m. near the intersection of Alkali Creek and Skyway Drive. A portion of Alkali Creek will be closed for traffic and open for parking.
Images and maps of the groundbreaking locations can be found in the groundbreaking day parking info document sent with this press release.
