Public has opportunity to weigh in on PATH streetscape improvement plans

HUNTINGTON – The City of Huntington and its partnering agencies will host a second public meeting to solicit feedback on current design plans for streetscape improvements that will connect the Paul Ambrose Trail for Health (PATH) to 14th Street West.

Community members are invited to visit with city officials and their partners to offer input on the plans from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 29, at The Wild Ramp Online Food Hub, located at 518 14th St. W. This will occur in conjunction with the Winter Arts Fest on 14th Street West.

This project seeks to create safe and appealing pedestrian and bicycle improvements for 14th Street West and connect this area to the Harveytown Trail section of the PATH. While the commercial heart of 14th Street West already has substantial pedestrian infrastructure, there are no existing pedestrian or cyclist crossings from the nearest PATH section across Memorial Boulevard to 14th Street West, and portions of 14th Street West between Memorial Boulevard and Madison Avenue do not have a continuous sidewalk.

This project will include improvements for bicycle and pedestrians that would connect the Harveytown PATH section to 14th Street West, creating a safe and welcoming option for pedestrians and cyclists to access the neighborhood and draw residents and visitors alike to the corridor.  

This project is a partnership among the City of Huntington, RenewAll, KYOVA and the West Virginia Division of Highways.

14th Street West PATH Connection Demonstration Project

Thank you to all who participated in our demonstration project for new bike and pedestrian connection at 14th Street West and Memorial and filled out our feedback survey. 

If you missed the demonstration project, please see below for some background.

On September 14th from 3-6 pm the City of Huntington in partnership with the partners on this PATH connection, welcomed all people to come walk, bike, or drive through the intersection of 14th Street West and Memorial Blvd. to try out a temporary traffic pattern to help create safer connections from the Paul Ambrose Trail for Health and the 14th Street West Main Street. 

The temporary traffic pattern included a proposed three way stop at 14th Street West and Memorial Boulevard, including crosswalks and a temporary connection to the Paul Ambrose Trail for Health.
