Construction has started on the walking/biking trail along Canada Road. This phase of the trail is from Highway 64 to about 1/2 mile south of the I-40/Canada Road interchange. The trail will be on both sides of Canada Road and will be approximately 10 feet wide.
The trail will provide bike and walking access along busy Canada Road and eventually will be part of a walking/biking trail from Highway 64 to Highway 70 along Canada Road. Many bicycle riders and walkers (including me) avoid Canada Road and thus the trail will resolve one of the major barriers to walkers and bicycle riders who want to walk or bike throughout the City.
One of the major objectives of the trail is to providing walking/bicycling connections between residential areas and the commercial areas along Highway 64, and the commercial areas at the I-40 and Canada Road interchange.
The trail is completed funded by a 100% federal grant administered Tennessee Department of Transportation.
