The Vivion Rd Trail is a great east-west trail that needs to be connected between Riverside/Line Creek Trail and Gorman Park. The Vivion Rd Trail in the future will serve Antioch Crossings. Because of that, the gap needs to be filled in order for bikes and pedestrians to safely travel from Riverside/Line Creek Trail to Gorman Park (and in the future Antioch Crossings).

Filling this gap in the trail system is essential! More cyclists and pedestrians would use this route if the had a safe path between Gladstone, Kansas City and Riverside.

Connecting trails is a great idea.

As a resident off Vivion Road, I see pedestrians and those on bicycles on a daily basis trying to maneuver the grass pathway from Riverside/Northmoor to N. Oak Trafficway. Its a dangerous roadway to maneuver without a pathway. Would make this area so much safer!

The Vivion Road extension from Riverside to North Oak is one of the most dangerous roadways North of the River. People from Riverside have to walk either along the side of the road or in the weeds to go to the grocery store or to get to work every day. The upgrade is desperately needed. The lack of sidewalks is an embarrassment to Riverside, Gladstone and KC.
