A new plan would connect up to 200 miles of off-road paths in the Greater Boston-area to make navigation easier for pedestrians and cyclists.

The project is called Emerald Network, and was developed by LivableStreets Alliance, The Boston Globe reports. The group aims to link several routes in development with existing pathways, including the Harborwalk, Somerville Community Path, and Charles River paths.

“Safe, accessible, off-road paths and their low-traffic stress connections are simply a better way to get around the city,’’ Jackie Douglas, executive director of LivableStreets, said in a statement.

According to the company’s website, the project will encompass communities including Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, Brookline, Milton, and Quincy.
