Oglesby Bike Path Moves Ahead

Posted by wlpo on September 8, 2010

The Oglesby City Council last night gave thumbs up to a proposed bike path in and around the city which should help efforts to get a 400 thousand dollar grant.

The proposed path put together by Chamlin and Associates starts on the east end of Oglesby by the swimming pool heads west to Route 351 or Columbia Avenue but bypasses the downtown.  The main path continues across Richard Moyle Highway across Interstate 39 before turning north and ending at Illinois Valley Community College.  The path also will extend south to the Dickinson House and north to Memorial Park.

Commissioner Dennis Yborra was the only hesitant approval saying infrastructure of the city should be the main priority.
