Prairie Path bridge reopens
After a year of construction, bicyclists and pedestrians on the Prairie Path can again safely and easily cross the Union Pacific railroad tracks near downtown Wheaton. The Illinois Prairie Path bridge, which connects Liberty and Front Streets, near the Wheaton Metra station, reopened earlier this month. The bridge has been redesigned to include a wider and longer platform, higher elevation, and new decorative lighting and fencing. For a press release announcing the bridge reopening, visit the City of Wheaton’s website.
