  3. Old Blue River Trail Neighborhood/Business Meeting

    April 9, 2018, 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM @ City Commission Room

    The City of Manhattan invites all interested persons to a public meeting to view plans and discuss a new trail connection between the Northview Neighborhood, Linear Trail, and McCall Road, called the Old Blue River Trail. Manhattan Parks and Recreation is proposing to extend the sidewalk that ends near Casement and Hayes Drive, south to the Linear Trail trailhead on Hayes Drive. A Pedestrian/Bike crossing will be installed across Hayes Drive to the new trail that will be constructed atop the access road and extend the route south to connect to a K-DOT project near IHOP and McCall Road. The trail will be constructed entirely within existing City property and is funded in part through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program and a Sunflower Foundation Grant.
