Extension of Racine’s Lake Michigan Pathway

The bicyclist traveling between Milwaukee and Chicago has the choice of two trails through Racine. One follows the Root River and the other the shore of Lake Michigan. Wisconsin recently announced two Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality awards that would be used to extend both ends of the latter. At the northern end it is:

Lake Michigan Pathway Phase III-A
Addition of new segment of the Lake Michigan Pathway project from Augusta Street to Melvin Avenue.

And at the southern end:

Lake Michigan Pathway Phase III-B
Addition of new segment of the Lake Michigan Pathway project from DeKoven Avenue to 24th Street.

As with the other grants, there is no mention of when these might actually be constructed.
