PATH Connection at Washington Blvd.

PATH Connection along Washington Boulevard

Opportunity for Comment November 15th - November 20th: 

Thanks to all who participated in the Washington Blvd PATH connection public meeting or submitting comments on what a preferred alignment would be. Staff reviewed comments, provided a summary to our engineer and are working on creating a preferred option.

Since the proposals generally recommend a trail on the north side of Washington Blvd and some comments included concerns about speeds and safe crossings across the road we would like to get feedback on the addition of stop signs along Washington Blvd.

Please use this survey form to provide comments on if and where you would like to see stop signs proposed along the roadway. Depending on the results and safe engineering advice we may include a recommendation for one or two stop signs/crossings if needed as part of the proposal.

Please feel free to share with others who would be interested in commenting, we do request that all answers are submitted by November 20th 2022.

Comments can be directed to a preferred alternative proposed above, a combination of alternative A and B, or other ideas not shown here. Sharing experiences of the kinds of trail experience preferred: pedestrians and cyclists sharing a  sidepath or pedestrians on a sidewalk, cyclists on the road, for example. Any experience of the roadway of how you current use it or what it would take for you to feel comfortable to use it more! 

Thank you again to our partners: consultants Burgess & Niple and West Virginia Division of Highways and the Transporation Alternatives program to design this new connection of PATH.
