Missouri High Priority Bike/Ped/ADA Projects

Rock Island/GW Trail (rail trail) (01STJ1020)


City: St Joseph.    Route: Rail trail    Location: KCI Airport through St Joseph to Iowa State Line

Type: bike trail

We need to connect the St Joseph trail system, which is pretty extensive, to the rest of the state of Missouri and across the Missouri river over into Kansas. We could also work on extending the trail system north up towards Council Bluffs. There's a lot of miles along the Missouri river that could be profitably accessed in both directions.

St Joseph already has an extensive network of bike trails within its borders. There is a proposed regional system going west thru northeastern Kansas, up to Lincoln Nebraska, over to Council Bluffs Iowa, and back down to St Joseph. It would be useful also to extend the system south to hook it up with Kansas City. The core system in St Joseph is already in place. Extending it, particularly along the Missouri river both north and south of town would create a regional system that would eventually hook up with the rest of the Katy trail.
