St. Joseph trail system could expand to adjacent cities

A new study will consider expanding St. Joseph's city-wide trail network to adjacent cities in Northwest Missouri.

St. Joseph's Urban Trail System is an extensive network linking neighborhoods with parks, schools, and other amenities. A new regional study will look at opportunities for expanding the system northward to Savannah and ultimately to other communities in Northwest Missouri and even south to Kansas City.

St. Joseph News-Press: City explores trail expansion.

St. Joseph’s trail system could soon become a source of pride for more than one community.

The city will accept proposals from transportation planning firms until Nov. 8 to determine if local governments can build a trail system connecting St. Joseph and Savannah, Mo.

The idea would extend St. Joseph’s Urban Trail north from Karnes Road along the old Chicago & Northwestern Railroad right of way to the Savannah city limit.
