State promises bike path across new bridge in Utica

Posted by wlpo on October 14, 2015

Cyclists rejoice, you’ll soon have a protected bike path from Dee Bennett Road across the river to the entrance of Starved Rock State Park.

According to the NewsTribune, the state has agreed to include the bike path into plans of replacing the Route 178 bridge. There will be a concrete wall and fencing to protect cyclists from traffic and from potentially falling into the river. The village will be responsible for the cost of fencing.

The hope is that construction of the new bridge will start next year.
