Really, really bad idea to pave the gravel trail from Orange to Van Buren with asphalt.
Wasn't the former name of that trail called the "Nature Trail?"
Wasn't that trail designed for pedestrians and cyclists?
How much faster can a bike go now along a path filled with kids, dogs and little old ladies.
There have been so many encounters with speeding cyclists and pedestrians that this will only increase the problem. And the potential for serious injury will increase. Hope the city has enough money socked away for lawsuits.
Time for a new name. How about "The Riverfront Expressway?"
