"Oh man, that is a great question on how it can be updated! The only pertinent information I found is from this link: https://support.google.com/maps/thread/6951258?hl=en By either user submission to report an error or by government official."

"No problem. Nobody ever accused me of being an artist, so rudimentary is about the pinnacle of the craft for me. :-) Anyone know how we'd get one or more of the mapping systems to officially incorporate these two bridges into their maps? The…"

"I don't mind California so much, but Mozart, one street west of California, is a decent alternative for northbound riding.  I typically use it between Montrose and the Wilson/Manor intersection, so I don't have to salmon on that…"

"Is there a plan for the south end of this mini trail system? I rode it this morning from north to south on the way to the loop. Did it out of curiosity and because California was closed for construction just north of Irving Park Rd, so I was over on…"

"Also, there is a similar bridge nearing completion just north of Lincoln between Kedzie and the trail on the west side of the river. When I went by yesterday, the concrete on the bridge itself was curing. The approaches had yet to be paved."

"I was curious as well, so went exploring yesterday. Here's my totally not-Google-approved map."

"Haven't seen a map but put 2572 W Belmont Ave in your GPS and that should get you there. You're on old path for a bit going north from Belmont.  Enter from Belmont sidewalk on the east bank of river.  Or if you want to start from…"

"Agree completely - why not continue it North of Montrose?"

"Where can I find a map of this, particularly with connections? I live nearby and would love to go ride it. Rode across Belmont the other day looking for it and couldn't see it."

"Respectfully disagree. I take the lane on Manor, there's usually little enough traffic, California is a poop show. Here's me going North from Belmont to Peterson where there's a new bridge being built back across to the West side of…"

"The only good parts of the Manor route is the pedestrian island in the middle of Montrose and Lawrence. As far as being a "greenway" it isn't even included in most discussions on the subject of greenways.  It's a joke, no…"

"All good questions Bob! I'm sure money, or lack thereof, is the main reason to stop at Montrose. I imagine most riders will use Manor Ave. to make connection between 312 RiverRun and N.Shore Channel Trail. That's my plan at least."
