Virtual Public Meeting on the Urban Trail Network

On Wednesday, June 8th from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM, the City of Providence will host a virtual public meeting to discuss the next potential segments of the Urban Trail Network, which include proposed neighborhood greenways throughout Providence’s East Side neighborhoods on: Benefit Street; Elmgrove Avenue; Doyle Avenue and Upton Street; and the Brown Street-Camp Steet-Memorial Road-Creston Way-Summit Avenue corridor.
This virtual meeting will be held via Zoom and can be accessed at https://mcmahon.zoom.us/j/96663396033
We want your feedback and ideas for how to make these streets safer and more comfortable for people walking, running, biking, and rolling. Modest improvements to these streets could be constructed as soon as Fall 2022 through Spring 2023.
Please note: for these particular streets, we are not considering protected bike lanes like those recently installed on South Water Street, nor are we considering parking removal.
In the Great Streets Plan, we identified three main types of investments that will come together to form the citywide Urban Trail Network:
1. Off road shared use paths (similar to the East Bay Bike Path)
2. On road bidirectional, physically separated paths (similar to the recent two-way paths constructed on South Water Street and Empire Street)
3. Neighborhood greenways (modest enhancements— such as wayfinding signage, traffic calming, and shared lane markings— along side streets to reduce speeding (if needed) and ensure these streets are safe for people walking and biking)
You can learn more about the Great Streets Master Plan and proposed projects citywide (including urban trails and neighborhood greenways) at http://www.providenceri.gov/planning/great-streets/
