PALOS HEIGHTS, Ill. (AP) - A 13-mile section of a trail built along the Cal-Sag Channel and Calumet River in Chicago’s south suburbs is now open.

U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin’s office said he helped open the western section of the Cal-Sag Trail with a ribbon-cutting on Saturday.

When complete the 26-mile trail will passes through 14 communities between Lemont and the Indiana state line.
