DETAILS: The Hi-Rail Greenway is part of the city’s non-motorized transportation network designed to enhanced recreational opportunities and make Evansville more walkable and bicycle-friendly. The corridor is approximately 2.5 miles in length, stretching from Riverside Drive to Walnut Street along the west side of U.S. Highway 41. It features a 10-foot wide asphalt trail, nine rest areas, benches, bike racks, over 200 new tree plantings, landscaping, fencing and solar lights. The Hi-Rail Greenway is a $2.2 million federally funded matching grant project with the federal government paying for 80 percent of the cost. The local share of the project’s costs was paid for with grants obtained by the city specifically for the Hi-Rail Greenway.
