Jamaica North Trail
Fundraising began in 2003 to raise $280,000 for the development of the 6.5 mile trail between Calvert St. and ½ mile south of Saltillo Rd. These funds along with Federal Enhancement funds provided for the development of this trail in 2006.
Twenty-plus GPTN volunteers under direction from Lynn Lightner installed railings and decking on 13 bridges on this trail.
In 2006, GPTN began raising money for Jamaica North Phase II. $270,000 needed to be raised to match the federal enhancement grant to complete a concrete 10-foot trail from the end of Phase I at Calvert St. to 4th and ‘J’ St. This stretch is 2.25 miles..
It is a major trail connection of the South Salt Creek and West ‘A’ neighborhoods and downtown Lincoln. The section between ‘A’ St. and ‘J’ St. along 4th St. was completed in 2008.
