International Trail Project Map
The trail will provide better pedestrian and bicycle connections to public facilities such as parks, schools, health, senior, and community centers and other destinations from surrounding neighborhoods. The trail alignment was identified by the local non-profit ACHIEVE.
The scoping report identifies $8 million in pedestrian-bicycle safety and traffic calming improvements along International Trail corridors designed to:
1. prevent injuries,
2. encourage walking for health,
3. accommodate users of all abilities, and
4. reduce speeding traffic.
Safety and calming improvements are proposed along each of the trail corridors and include such features as:
· wider sidewalks with planting strips,
· bike lanes,
· ADA curb ramps,
· safer intersections with marked crosswalks and pedestrian signals
· lighting and signage.
