Hello All,

I appreciate the excellent proposed suggestions for the trail system and
WGM's map. I'd also like to point out the proposed bike trails that
remain part of the Northside Westside Plan. See:
That document includes a map, as well.

It proposes a trail just south of the Interstate between Northside Park
and Scott Street and a trail next to the Bitterroot Spur from the
pedestrian overpass of the mainline tracks to Broadway and then across
to McCormick Park on an add-on augmentation to the existing Rail Road
bridge. In recognition of this plan-proposed Bitterroot Trail
extension, the new Safeway redevelopment will be required to include a
one-block section of trail between the new store and the tracks.

The recently concluded Broadway Corridor Charette Plan should also make
reference to this long-desired bridge crossing of the Clark Fork at the
Bitterroot Spur ROW. I think these Northside trail suggestions may go
way back to the first Nonmotorized Transportation Plan that Mary Jean
Gillman (Feet First) worked with more than ten years ago.

To me, they still make great sense.

Hi all,

FWIW.... There are several locations where what's called "existing" on
the WGM map and what's on the ground are not the same; McGrath points
out one. That's ok...the map doesn't have to be perfectly accurate to
stimulate discussion-per Kristin's idea, potentially as input into the
transportation plan.

This map indicates there is an EXISTING bike lane on Russell from 14th
to Broadway. Really?

We have a lot of folks in our office who bike to work from all parts of
the valley. We have brainstormed on where Missoula's bicycle network
could be expanded and have prepared a map for discussion purposes. If
you're interested, you may view it at:
http://www.wgmgroup.com/Bicycle_Network_11x17.pdf. Since the
Transportation Plan is up for revisions, this is a good time for the
community to think about where new bike routes could be added.
