Headlines are quick hits from media outlets from Missouri and around the world. Follow the headline link for the full story. The source of this headline says:

More than two dozen institutions, attractions and neighborhoods are on a list of likely destinations on a 12-mile network of protected bicycle-pedestrian paths which Trailnet hopes to develop in St. Louis in coming years.

The trail advocacy group on Friday released a map with 26 destinations culled in part from surveys of residents. Other locations not on the map also are under consideration, Trailnet officials said.

The map includes spots in the central corridor from the Arch-riverfront area to Shaw Park in Clayton and stretches south to Cherokee Street and north to Fairground Park. . .

"Our plan focuses on the North Side and South Side, bringing connectivity to the neighborhoods and the people.....into the spine" of the city, Trailnet CEO Ralph Pfremmer said at a news conference at the St. Louis Community Foundation building in Clayton.

Trailnet officials also said they hoped to initiate a pilot trail of up to two miles sometime next year.

MoBikeFed comment: Creating this interonnected network of protected bikeways and sidewalks at the heart of the St. Louis metro area has become one of the top priorities for Trailnet.
