Project Overview

The City of Madison is proposing the construction of a new 2800-foot long pedestrian shared use path that would connect the existing Capital City Path at Sugar Avenue northward to Milwaukee Street. Three structural elements are proposed as part of the design including a bridge through the northern limits of the project, a bridge replacement at Ivy Street, and a new bridge crossing over Starkweather Creek. In addition to the path work, Starkweather Drive is proposed to be reconstructed from Hargrove Street to Dawes Street as a one way northbound street.
