For immediate release:

The Kansas Department of Transportation will begin work on Phase I of the Maple Leaf Trail on April 4, 2023. This section extends from the depot on High Street along the west side of the railroad tracks to the Elm Street crossing. It is funded by a $1.1 million dollar Transportation Alternatives Grant awarded in February 2021, with a 20% required local match from the City of Baldwin City.
