The planning process for the River Rock Connections Project is comprised of three main components split into three phases. The three main components focus on determining the opportunities and feasibility for
(1) multi-modal access and connectivity to waterfront parks with a focus on tow Path Park;
(2) complete streets that include more opportunities for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit riders; and
(3) multi-use trails that utilize former/abandoned railroads that traverse the neighborhoods.
The three phases of the project include
(1) existing conditions inventory;
(2) connection opportunities; and
(3) connectivity plan including a preliminary waterfront park design, cost estimates, and identification of next steps / follow-on activities for implementation.
The project study area includes the Riverside and Black Rock neighborhoods, and the connections to these neighborhoods. A map of the study area is available below.
