Front Street Pathway Closer to Completion
by Matt Marcinek, GVLT Community Trails Program Manager
[5 March 2020] A trail connection project between Rouse Avenue and the Depot Park in the Northeast Neighborhood has seen advances lately. First approved by the City Commission in 2015, the Front Street Pathway project was delayed by the Rouse Avenue reconstruction project. Now that MDT plans to complete their Rouse Avenue project this year, the Front Street Pathway project can move forward.
Recently, GVLT and the City received approval for additional funding for the Front Street Pathway from the Trails, Open Space and Parks Committee with the support of NENA. The City Commission will review the request of the Committee at a future meeting. City Engineering and Parks & Recreation are working through final designs and flood plain considerations before going to the Commission. Once complete the project will connect the Depot Park and Story Mill Spur Trail with Rouse Avenue at the intersection with Oak St., at the Cannery District and the new Public Safety Building.
