A partnership between the U.S. and Canada is encouraging people to use bikes to explore both sides of the Detroit River.
Those involved are releasing a so-called vision map Sunday about connecting emerging greenways, trails and bike lanes that can be used by pedestrians or bicyclists.
Organizers say that they hope greenways of southwestern Ontario and southeastern Michigan will be linked by a bike lane on the Gordie Howe International Bridge across the Detroit River. The Canadian-financed bridge is scheduled to open in 2020.
Todd Scott, executive director of the Detroit Greenways Coalition, says in a statement the map “highlights the need to build cross border connections for those traveling on foot or by bike.” The map will be posted on the Detroit Greenways Coalition’s website.
