Greenway trails are places for many transportation alternatives, including walking, bicycling, and travel by horseback. They are also opportunities for preservation of our region’s cultural heritage and environmental quality. The new PlanET book “Greenway Guidelines for the East Tennessee Region: Recommendations for Water, Rail and Roadside Trails in Regional Landscapes” provides a brief introduction to greenway corridor design; illustrates road, rail and waterside corridor conditions typical to East Tennessee; and offers before-and-after visions of greenways in urban, suburban and rural East Tennessee landscapes. The guide also provides easy-to-use visual indexes to assist in the selection and design of trail crossings, surface materials, signage, buffers, barriers, borders, lighting, and trailside amenities.
