Columbia Greenway Crossing at Shaker Road

08142012 042

Improvements to the crossing of the Columbia Greenway Rail Trail at Shaker Road, as well as new connection of the trail to Country Club Drive.

The intent of this project is to provide safe, off-road accommodation to users of the Columbia Greenway. Users currently travel the shoulder of Shaker Road, a busy bypass around the City by both automobiles and trucks, posing a substantial safety concern as well as a disincentive to use. The proposed work also includes enhanced safety measures for users of the Columbia Greenway at the Shaker Road crossing.

The Country Club Drive Connector is a resource visible and available to the general public and will serve significant population along its route. It will expand opportunities to residents of all ages and abilities. Further, it will promote low-impact recreation via walking, jogging, biking, and cross-country skiing on City-owned property.
