Trail construction in progressPathway Applications
The Valparaiso Pathways and Greenways Master Plan calls for five trail / pathway applications.
  • Easement Pathways
  • Open Space Pathways
  • Road Pathways
  • Street Bike Lanes
  • Street Pathways
  Where applicable, the consultant recommended the inclusion of conduits within the trailway. Such conduits can serve the city now and in the future in running fiber optics and other similar utility lines. With the construction of the trails and pathways, such a piece of utility infrastructure should be seen as an asset.

Note: It is not the intention of the Valparaiso Pathways and Greenways Master Plan to acquire land for such development unless it is donated or negotiated with the city and the property owner.
