Kanis/Boyle Park Connection

Boyle Park has an extensive trail system that could be used as part of a bicycle and pedestrian transportation corridor if the trail system were connected to a larger network, such as the proposed Midline.  A quality connection between Kanis and Boyle Parks would create considerable connectivity south of I-630 (an economically depressed area that could benefit greatly from a bicycle and pedestrian transportation corridor for economic equity).  This connection could take different routes to address the challenges associated with the project, such as a crossing across Kanis Road separated from vehicular traffic (Fig. 1).
