Stimulus money to fund Janesville bike trail
The city of Janesville will receive $435,000 from the Department of Transportation in order to construct 1.8 miles of paved bicycle trail.
The funding comes through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Community Development Director Brad Cantrell considers it a worthy project because the section to be constructed joins two others. The new portion of trail will run from the intersection of Wright Road and Highway 14 west along the north side of the Pine Tree Plaza and Wal-Mart.
Construction is expected in 2010.
