City shares plan to fulfill trail's goal for a car-free, north-south path for walkers and riders

By Chris Peters, Stillwater NewsPress, Okla. November 18, 2022 Nov. 18—After decades of disjointed sections, the Kameoka Trail might soon be connected with Stillwater's first rails-to-trails conversion. City staff submitted a resolution to the City Council on Monday to apply for an Oklahoma Department of Transportation grant. The Transportation Alternatives grant would contribute $1.2M to the project, matched with $240,000 from the City's general fund. The idea is to convert the railroad spur that runs north and south into a paved multi-use path that connects Boomer Lake to Couch Park. The TA grant would help fund the first 1.25 miles to be converted between East Lakeview Road and East McElroy Road. City staff will look to apply for future ODOT TA grant funds to convert the remaining 1.25 miles of railroad between McElroy and East 12th Avenue, near the southernmost section of the Kameoka Trail begins.
