McWane Ductile - Ohio, a McWane Inc. company, announced a $500,000 donation toward constructing a new multi-use path in Coshocton, Ohio, in partnership with Coshocton County. The “McWane River Walk” project will provide opportunities for outdoor recreation, healthier lifestyles, and safer connectivity between neighborhoods, local businesses, and schools, providing a more vibrant community.

“McWane Ductile is deeply rooted in Coshocton, and we take immense pride in operating one of our plants within this great community,” said Tom Crawford, McWane Ductile - Ohio vice president and general manager. “Investing in local initiatives is essential for the betterment of our employees, their families, and the overall prosperity of our area. This endeavor is a significant milestone that reflects McWane Ductile’s ongoing vision of creating a positive impact beyond just our operational goals.” 

Coshocton County will oversee the project’s construction, with the path being built through portions of city blocks and along the scenic areas nested near the Muskingum and Tuscarawas Rivers. The McWane River Walk will begin at the west end of Main Street and ultimately connect to the current Lake Park Connector path.  

Path construction started Monday, August 14, and will end with a dedication ceremony tentatively set for the week of September 25, 2023.
