Sidewalks & Trails (Connectivity) Plan
The City of Hudson Sidewalks and Trails (Connectivity) Master Plan represents the continued effort to provide safe and practical community-wide bicycle and pedestrian connectivity in the community. The final Sidewalk and Trail Master Plan 2021-2025 was approved by City Council on February 16, 2021.
Miles of sidewalk completed to date (17,560 ft)
Additional miles of sidewalk planned (66,000 ft)
These sections are complete:
- Middleton Rd from 91 to Stow Rd & High Point Park
- Herrick Park from 91 to Hudson-Aurora
- The entire length of 91 through Hudson
These sections are up next (to be completed in 2023):
- Middleton Rd between Valley View Rd and 91
- Stow Rd from Hudson Springs Park to E Streetsboro St
- E Streetsboro St between N Hayden Pkwy and Stone Rd
- New 10’ Trail along Valley View Road along with a shared used path (via pavement markings) on Hunting Hollow.
In 2024, the City will start constructing the trails outlined in the plan.
- Why do we have a Sidewalk and Trail Master Plan?
The plan assists the City of Hudson with funding and planning future sidewalks within Hudson. It helps us coordinate connections to other regional trails and walkways in our area with the goal of continually improving safe and practical community-wide bicycle and pedestrian activity in the community.
- Where can I find a map of the future budgeted sidewalks and trails?
- How do these projects benefit Hudson residents?
The proposed sidewalks and trails will allow residential neighborhoods to connect to parks, trails, to downtown, neighborhoods, and schools, therefore allowing safe, community-wide, non-vehicular travel in Hudson.
- What projects will we see constructed in 2021?
- Herrick Park Drive from SR 91 to Lascala Drive
- SR 91 just north of Norton Road to Terex Road
- SR 91 Garden Lane to the Twinsburg Township line
- SR 303 from W. Case to Nicholson Drive
- W. Barlow Road from SR 91 to east of the railroad tracks

- Is there a direct fee or charge to the adjacent property owners for this sidewalk work?
No. The sidewalk work and any other public capital incidental construction items on this project are budgeted within the City of Hudson’s Annual Budget.
- Will I still receive packages, deliveries, and US Mail Service during construction?
Yes. The contractor will need to provide access to these services during the construction of the project. Except for when a driveway is being constructed, the owner should notify the City of any large deliveries one day in advance of delivery.
- Will I still receive refuse and trash pickup service?
Yes. The Contractor will need to provide access to this service during the construction of the project.
- Will my driveway access be disrupted?
Yes. The Contractor will provide advance notice of 24 hours for any driveway that will be out of service and non-accessible. The contractor will be required to provide a parking location for two vehicles for up to 10 hours of closing the driveway, at each property. If the driveway cannot be opened within 10 hours to vehicle traffic, the contractor shall provide parking for vehicles, but no longer than 24 hours.
- Who do I call if I have an issue?
The City will provide a 24-hour contact number from the contractor doing the work at the start of construction.
- What if I have a private irrigation system or underground dog fence within the City right-of-way? Will I need to relocate it?
Yes. The City will send out a letter in advance of the project bidding to notify residents who will need to relocate their private irrigation and dog fences prior to construction.
