We’re exciting to be a partner in this collaborative effort that has produced more than an international greenways map. It is a vision to connect the growing bike and walk networks on both sides of the Detroit River.
A U.S. – Canadian partnership is hoping a new map will encourage people to grab their bikes and explore both sides of the Detroit River. The group has released a binational greenways vision map to connect emerging international greenways, trails, and bike lanes, establishing safe and convenient routes for pedestrians and bicyclists.
It is the vision of these Canadian and U.S. partners to encourage stronger linkages between emerging greenways of southwest Ontario and southeast Michigan via future dedicated bike lanes on the new Gordie Howe Bridge and a possible future ferry system between Windsor and Detroit.
Partners in this project include: Bike Friendly Windsor Essex, Canadian Consulate General, City of Detroit, City of Windsor, Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan, Detroit Greenways Coalition, Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau, Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, Detroit/Wayne County Port Authority, Downtown Detroit Partnership, Essex County, Essex Region Conservation Authority, National Park Service, Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Wheelhouse Detroit and Windsor Bicycling Committee.
Don’t let the international border limit you!
