Bush bill rides in money for new local biking path

Evanston will receive $4.2 million from a federal transportation bill signed by President George W. Bush to create a bicycle path network and to make improvements to Ridge Avenue and Sheridan Road.

The Safe, Accountable, Flexible and Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, signed in August, will put $200,000 to the construction of bike paths starting in 2006. Ridge Avenue’s $2.4 million renovation is planned for 2007, and $1.6 million to rebuilding Sheridan Road beginning in 2008.

Plans for a system of bike paths began in 2001, and the City of Evanston hired T.Y. Lin International and the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation to create the Evanston Bicycle System Improvement Plan. The assessment determined the levels of demand and what roads could and should include bike lanes or routes.
