Evans Shoreline Trail is on the move in 2024!

After much planning and coordination among Town/Village, County and State officials, construction will commence this spring on portions of the Shoreline Trail: Beaches Section project in the Town of Evans.

Upon completion in 2026, this trail extension will result in over 5 miles of uninterrupted multi-use path, connecting multiple Town and County parks that sit along this already popular scenic and recreational waterfront corridor in the WNY region.

The overall goal is to give people the ability to walk and bike along the Lake Erie waterfront in a more enjoyable and safer environment, while also promoting local neighborhood and business development.

This upcoming installation of the Shoreline Trail: Beaches Section is occurring in multiple phases along 3 miles of Lake Shore Road right-of-way, connecting Lake Erie Beach Park, Evans Town Park and Bennett Beach County Park with a six feet wide pedestrian and bicycle roadside asphalt pathway.

The entire corridor improvements project will also include new covered drainage system, a complete water main replacement, as well as new landscaping and signage. 

“We are very thankful and fortunate to have received this funding from the NYS Department of Transportation and Community Development Block Grants to improve access and infrastructure along our beautiful Lake Erie waterfront,” said Town Supervisor Ray Ashton. “It’s clearly a smart investment in promoting the development of our community.”

There is also referendum before the Lake Shore Central School District on Tuesday, May 21st for the donation of a 15 ft by 581 ft strip of land to the Town fronting the AJ Schmidt Elementary School on Lake Shore Road to accommodate the Trail. Local officials are encouraging people to vote in favor of the donation as it will help provide a safe passage for students to walk and bike to the school.

Town of Evans and Erie County representatives will also be hosting an informational Open House on May 30th, 2024 (5:30-7:30 PM) at Evans Town Hall to answer questions and discuss the project and any concerns with local residents and stakeholders.
