The construction of this trail will provide safe off-road access between the East Troy Village Square, Mill Pond Park, and the nearly 450 households and businesses located on Honey Creek Road. The trail will be accessed via roadway or adjacent properties and will connect to the existing trail along the east side of Mill Pond Park. The trail will be lit for safety and will create ADA compliant safe crossings and travel zones along STH 120/CTH G and alleviate conflict between traffic and pedestrians who already walk or bike along the highway system to travel to parks, the village square business district, schools, and community centers.
In early October 2023, WisDOT released the list of TAP grant awardees following the spring 2023 application cycle. The Bike Fed is thrilled to announce that the East Troy Connector Trail was awarded $1,189,468 for the completion of this project. Going forward, Bike Fed staff will continue working with project stakeholders and community members to ensure the new segment of the trail can be used safely and equitably.
