The Amos Road Trial is a key part of the city’s vision for alternate transportation for city residents, allowing residents an opportunity to explore and navigate the city without requiring the use of an automobile. Eventually, the Amos Road Trail will also connect to the Progress Parkway Trail via Twin Lakes, creating a more valuable amenity for the residents of Twin Lakes. As the Amos Road Trail is extended north to Broadway Street, the bridge over the railroad tracks will be expanded to allow for a safe bike and pedestrian pathway. Broadway will allow bicyclists and pedestrians easy access to amenities downtown. The Amos Road Trail will also allow users of the Central Park Walking Paths another way to join the city-wide trail network.
