Residents react to South Bend trail plan
Route follows old coal line between Notre Dame, Lincoln Way West.
Coal Line Trail would extend along the old Norfolk Southern right-of-way, formerly used to transport coal to Notre Dame, from the East Bank Trail, across the St. Joseph River, under Portage Avenue to Lincoln Way West.
Phase one, slated for 2019, would span Lincoln Way West to Riverside Drive. Phase two, slated for 2020, would span Riverside to the East Bank Trail, just west of Indiana 933.
