New Asphalt Bike Path From Raymond Road to Flagstone Drive Proposed

The City of Madison is proposing to construct a new asphalt bicycle and pedestrian path from Raymond Road to Flagstone Drive at Quartz Lane, in 2013. This is an extension of the existing Ice Age Junction Path which begins in Verona. and currently ends at Raymond Road. This project will include a new bike bridge over Upper Badger Mill Creek. The project also includes a connecting path to the end of existing Jeffy Trail, sanitary sewer installation serving Hawks Creek subdivision and stormwater improvements downstream of the ponds east of Jeffy Trail.(This project is separate from  but related to the proposed changes for the property purchased from Madison Audubon Society, for which there was a recent neighborhood meeting.)

Neighbors and other interested citizens are invited to attend a Public Informational Meeting where City staff will present maps and information, and seek input on the project. The meeting will be: Thursday, March 14, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM
Madison Police West District Station, 1710 McKenna Blvd.

For further information about the project, please visit the City’s website: or you may contact for information or special meeting accommodations.

That is a pretty long path of just asphalt. But, it is either asphalt, or dirt. Concrete is way too expensive to do a trial on this long. Asphalt lasts a very long time as well, so it is a good thing to use on bike trails. One of the best ways to explore nature if you ask me. You can cover a lot of ground on a bike.
