A TRAILSNext™ presentation
Learn about how to evaluate an existing trail network to identify projects and opportunities to create a connected trail and greenway network in an urban area.
|The Boston region has an extensive collection of rail trails, river paths, and separated bike lanes, and more in planning and design. However we are far from a connected network. MAPC, the regional planning agency for Boston, has come up with a plan for a connected trail and greenway network. Branded LandLine, the network vision helps build partnerships at all levels of government to ensure coordination of greenway development and build support for completion. This presentation will describe the elements of the plan, accomplishments to date, and the future steps. The Plan is transportation focused with the goal of incorporating more active transportation trips throughout the region between work, home and leisure. https://www.mapc.org/transport...
