Ground was broken Tuesday to mark the beginning of the next phase of construction on the Pufferbelly Trail.

This year's work on the trail will extend 1.25 miles from Dupont Road to Carroll Road and is scheduled to be completed in late September at a cost of $729,000. Financial partners are the city, City Utilities, Allen County, Fort Wayne Trails and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources through a grant from the federal government.

Once all phases are completed, the Pufferbelly will stretch 13 miles from downtown Fort through northern Allen County. The trail will ultimately extend 80 miles from Ouabache State Park in Bluffton to Pokagon State Park in Angola.
