Poggemeyer Design Group is looking at an alternative alignment of a new bike path that may ease concerns of nearby property owners worried that it is too close to their homes.
 
The bike path is part of the Stadium Road Bikeway Phase 2 project, which will connect the existing Municipal Complex Connector, currently ending on Corduroy Road on the Clay High School frontage, to the existing Stadium Road Bikeway that currently ends just north of Eagles Landing Drive. The bikeway will be a 10-foot wide asphalt multi-use path with two foot wide treated shoulders and will be 8,100-feet long.
  
Charles Carson, of Corduroy Road, told council at a recent meeting that he is opposed to any alignment of the bike path on the south side of Corduroy because it would be too close to his house. He would prefer to see the path go on the north side of the road because there was more open field.
 
Public Service Director Paul Roman said he was aware of Carson’s concerns about the bike path on Corduroy.
