The Wayne County Commission, along with the cities of Ceredo and Kenova, have envisioned a bike path beginning at Virginia Point Park, West Virginia’s western most point in Kenova and continuing onto Ceredo and eventually linking other trails in Huntington and Cabell County.
E.L. Robinson’s landscape architects were retailed to develop a master plan for this path, through a series of public participation workshops eventually creating a plan using a combination of share the road routes, abandoned rail right of ways, floodwall levees, and active rail right of ways to create over 12 miles of bicycle trails within the cities boundaries. The first phase involves development of the share the road routes with development of rail heads and signage.
EL Robinson then assisted the co-sponsors of the Wayne County Bike Path, City of Kenova, Town of Ceredo, and Wayne County Commission, with design and construction administration for the second phase of the Bike Path Project which entailed sidewalk enhancements along the Path’s route to improve pedestrian use of the Path.
Also the development of interpretive panels along the route for telling the cities’ history was part of ELR’s design scope.
