This proposed project will construct a 10-foot wide shared-use (bicycle and pedestrian) path from the southern park limits to Commercial Avenue, generally following the route of the existing path along the east side of Demetral Park. In addition to reconstructing and widening this existing path, some new segments will be added to create a direct, continuous route from the south end of the park to the north end. The project may also include a short path segment at First St.
In the Fall of 2016, the Demetral Path was reconstructed from approximately North Fourth Street to Commercial Avenue. The remaining work necessary to connect the path from North Fourth Street to North First Street is scheduled to be completed in 2018.
Ultimately this path project will be a key component in an effort to complete the off-street, shared use path from the Yahara River Parkway Path to Commercial Avenue, a distance of more than 1.4 miles, linking East side neighborhoods to the downtown area.
