Construction on the bridge crossing Capitol Drive in Shorewood has halted for the winter. It is now expected to be completed in March or April. Since Capitol Drive has been reduced to one lane during construction, the connection between the bike path and Estabrook Parkway is problematic. The safest route may be to use the detour along Wilson Drive and Hampton. A bike path connects Wilson and the Oak Leaf Trail along the south side of Hampton.
However the bridge on the Milwaukee River Parkway in Lincoln Park has finally opened.
Update (December 31): All four lanes of Capitol Drive are open, plus bike lanes.
