Park Avenue Multi-Use Path

Post Date:08/24/2018 2:12 PM
Park Avenue TrailConstruction is underway on a half-mile of 10-foot wide multi-use path along Park Avenue from Empie Park to Audubon Boulevard. This new trail will become part of the River-to-Sea bike route, which follows Park Avenue.

The project includes two bridges, one of which will intersect with the Gary Shell Cross-City Trail, providing a second connection between the Cross-City Trail and the River-to-Sea route. Work on this phase is slated for completion later this year. A second phase of this multi-use path is planned for later in 2018 and will continue the multi-use path from Audubon Boulevard all the way to Kerr Avenue.
