Will the new Red Line Greenway transform Cleveland?

The Red Line Greenway, a proposed three-mile bike-and-hike trail and linear park that would be built alongside the RTA Red Line on Cleveland‘s west side, could be one of the most transformational projects the city has seen in years (take a virtual tour through the photos above).

As the greenway is conceived, it would run from Zone Recreation Center at West 53rd and Lorain Avenue, across the Flats RTA bridge and into downtown.

With 13 planned connections to adjacent neighborhoods, gorgeous natural landscapes in an urban setting, the lingering detritus of urban railroad history, not to mention to-die-for views of downtown, the Cuyahoga River and the Flats, this project is a win-win for Cleveland and RTA if it comes to fruition.
