Shared Use Pathways are a type of shared bikeway and pedestrian-way physically separated from the roadway and are intended to be shared by multiple types of pathway users, serving both transportation and recreational purposes.
Bayside to Portland Transportation Center Pathway The Bayside to Portland Transportation Center Pathway is a critical missing link in an evolving shared use pathway network that will encircle the Portland peninsula and connect to other existing and planned pathways and our neighboring communities.
This study, completed in early 2016, developed a shared use pathway concept to connect the Back Cove Trail/Tukey’s Bridge pathway with the shared use pathway built on the newly constructed Martin’s Point Bridge.
This study, completed in 2009, developed two potential alignments for a shared use pathway from the Veteran’s Bridge/Fore River Parkway Trail to Harborview Park along West Commercial Street. The MaineDOT constructed Phase I in 2015 as part of the International Marine Terminal Project including the traffic signal at Beach Street and a pathway from east of Beach Street to just east of the Star Match Building. The city has secured funding for Phase II and will be embarking on its design in the near future.
