The first section focuses on the off-road connection to Memorial Stadium, an on-road section along White Fawn Dr, and an off-road section beginning at the existing terminus of White Fawn Drive that ultimately connects to Ardmion Park.  Because of the steep grades coming up from Memorial Stadium switchbacks are necessary to achieve comfortable and accessible grades for trail users.


The next section focuses on the off-and road segments along Ardmion Park.  Due to limited width, the on-road section design includes sidewalk and sharrow (bicycle facility in which bicycles share the road with vehicles). Sharrows are pavement markings that alert drivers that cyclist will likely be present on the road. They do not create a separate bike lane but rather signal that the road is to be shared.


Lastly, the final section continues to focus on the off-road greenway segment along Ardmion Park.   The trail follows the right of way along Ardmion Park to its connection with Beaumont Street.  The on-road portion trail along the Beaumont Street and College Street is a combination of sidewalk and sharrows leading up to the Helens Bridge access. Sharrows are pavement markings that alert drivers that cyclist will likely be present on the road. They do not create a separate bike lane but rather signal that the road is to be shared.


ALTERNATIVE ANALYSIS 

There have been many iterations coming up with our current alignment (shown in Green). All the orange lines on this map show possibilities that were explored and ruled out for reasons including cost to build, ADA compliance, environmental impacts, input from neighbors, and constructability. The pink line connecting to White Fawn Reservoir has been designed but will be built as a later project.
