Conway can build a trails system that safely moves pedestrians and cyclists all over the city.
The addition of pedestrian (and pedestrian accommodating) overpasses at key locations will open up the entire city to runners, walkers and cyclists. The convenient location of public institutions, schools, parks and developing property means that now is the time to expand our trails system citywide.
The new overpass at Central Landing is the first interstate overpass in Conway designed to accommodate pedestrians and cyclists. A dedicated greenway through Central Landing connecting to proposed trails east of Conway Commons (behind Home Depot/Old Navy) will extend the reach of our trails system. Pedestrian overpasses at Oak Street and Harkrider modeled after the recently announced Dave Ward Drive pedestrian overpass will safely connect trail users to new sections of trails that can extend north and east to Lower Ridge Road.
