The project is located along Ameriplex Drive, Louis Sullivan Drive, and Daniel Burnham Drive. The project will result in the construction of a new shared-use path; the project is part of the Indiana Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan 2016-2020. The new trail is a continuation and extension of the Marquette Greenway Trail, which is part of the Regional Trail System.

The proposed trail will be divided into five phases. and, when complete, will extend from the eastern city limits of Burns Harbor, passing through Indiana Dunes National Park property, meandering west and south, generally following the Indiana Dunes National Park property to the city limits of Burns Harbor on the west.
