In the next year or two, the Lake to Lakes Trail will connect Lake Erie to the Shaker Lakes. This trail takes advantage of the existing Harrison-Dillard Bikeway through Rockefeller Park, past the Cultural Gardens. After passing through University Circle, the trail winds uphill along Fairhill Road. Currently, it ends at the Cleveland-Shaker Heights border on Fairhill.
Cleveland Heights and Shaker Heights share grants to extend the trail to the Shaker Lakes. Cleveland Heights will contribute $28,000 or less for engineering and construction of the part of the trail that connects the Lake to Lakes Trail to the North Park bike lanes at Coventry. Construction may start in 2014 but will likely be completed in 2015.
Total cost of the Shaker Heights-Cleveland Heights project is projected to be $680,000. The green segment on the map above shows the Cleveland Heights portion of the project.
