Keystone Connector Update Meeting

The trail connector linking the Keystone Trail to the Field Club Trail is a high priority for east-west bike commuters.  See below about a public meeting that will update us on the progress! 

A public meeting and presentation on the proposed alignment of the New Keystone Trail East Connector Trail –Phase 2 will be held at:

Location: Kroc Center – Salvation Army, 2825 “Y” Street, Omaha, NE 68107

Date: Thursday, July 21, 2011

Time: 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM

The purpose of the meeting and presentation is to discuss the proposed alignment with adjacent landowners, neighborhood residents and interested citizens; to answer questions and receive comments from the public.

The proposed alignment of this section of the trail begins at South 45th and Dayton Streets and will extend east to the southern terminus of the Field Club Trail at South 35th and Vinton Streets. The trail will extend east along the former Chicago Northwestern Railroad right-of-way, underneath South 42nd Street, cross over to “D” Street just east of South 42nd Street, continue east to South 36th Street, use the existing South 36th Street bridge to cross the existing railroad tracks before going underneath Interstate 80 near the old grain elevators to meet up with the Field Club Trail.

This could be a great connection point to have between these two trails. At the moment I just take Grover to connect between the two points. Although the new trail would really offer the opportunity for more folks to connect without having to ride on "busy" streets. I hope to see this happen.
