This is a portion of the Kalamazoo River Valley Trailway Master Plan.
The term “trailway” has been generically used by the Kalamazoo River Valley Trailway Partnership to describe a multiple-use facility intended for bicycling, walking, running, cross-country skiing and inline skating. Trailways are preferred to be implemented as shared use paths separated from vehicular travel whenever feasible, but may also route on roadways in the form of bicycle lanes, paved shoulders or shared use bicycle routes. For this reason, the following definitions and cross-sectional details are provided to further clarify design treatments proposed for various segments of the project.
