Will County approves two sections of DuPage River trail
The Will County Board of Commissioners approved a construction contract for two sections of the DuPage River Trail, as highlighted in the Spring 2012 edition of the Forest Preserve of Will County’s newsletter, The Citizen. One section is in Naperville, near 95th Street and Naperville Road to near Knock Knolls Park in the DuPage River Preserve. Last year, this trail connection was awarded $1.37 million in Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement(CMAQ) program funds. This trail will link to a bicycle facility being built as part of an extension of 95th Street over the DuPage River.
The other segment to be constructed is in the Village of Plainfield, from Black Road (County Highway 56) to Sunset Ridge Park near the Hammel Woods Preserve.
