Our Task

This plan provides recommendation to improve walking and bicycling facilities in Route Park and make it a fun and safe place to recreate. One of the key recommendations is the SuperPath, a physically separated on-road pathway
that allows bicycles and pedestrians to move in both directions on one side of the road. The proposed path would be a 3.4 mile loop around Rouge Park and would include wayfinding and safety improvements. There is also potential for a future trail connection between the Super Path and Hines Park Drive.
