The easiest route to walk or bicycle between Highland Park (the park and the south west neighborhood) and Midtown is to pass under the freeway along the GRE (Grand Rapids Eastern) railroad tracks. Residents have been using this safe and convenient pathway for years. You can stand there and see the 'demand lines' and on nice days you do not have to wait long to see people using this route.

Last night (2015-06-29) a public input meeting was held on the west side in Richmond Park (1101 Richmond St. NW) concerning a proposal to perform a road diet trial on Alpine Ave. This diet includes the recently resurfaced section of Alpine between Leonard St. and Richmond St. This is a trial which would be put in place this summer and observed to determine the lane configuration that would be used for next section of the road to be resurfaced [from Richmond to Ann St].
