A shared-use path is a two-way, curbed path along a roadway that is wider than a standard sidewalk and prioritizes safety and usability. They are designed to provide enough space for pedestrians and cyclists to navigate the path at the same time. Conversely, sidewalks that are no wider than six feet are generally limited to pedestrian use, with a few exceptions.

RAISE Manchester features multiple new shared-use paths, with the widest being 12 feet. This is the same width as most rail trails. The proposed shared-use paths are also fully ADA compliant.
