Working alongside utility companies across the country, many communities build safe and accessible trails within utility corridors. Some of the most visible examples of these trails span miles under large power lines, but there are many other types of utilities – including water, sewer, natural gas, electric and fiber optic – that also share trail corridors.

This webinar discusses the benefits, challenges, and opportunities of co-locating trails and utilities. Our panelists share lessons learned and experiences from both the trail manager and utility company perspectives to highlight these powerful partnerships.
