Oglesby City Council on board with new bike path

Posted by wlpo on February 25, 2016

Would you like a bike patch connecting Oglesby to Starved Rock State Park?

According to the NewsTribune, the city of Oglesby is applying for a grant to pay for their part of a bicycle path connecting the city to Starved Rock.  In Oglesby, the path goes along an abandoned railroad right-of-way behind Lehigh Park before connecting to Ed Hand Highway.  The county then would fund a new bridge over the Vermilion River with dedicated bike lanes.

Oglesby would be on the hook for about $50,000 for their section of the path if they can get the grant worth over $200,000.
