In Plattevillle, an existing limestone trail constructed in 2011 connects the Mound View State Trail with Mound View Park – and on to Prairie View Park, Platteville High School, and Legion Park. Residents are seeking to pave and light the trail to improve accessibility, safety, and support Platteville’s inclusion, diversity, and equity efforts. The connector will also add to the regional trail network by linking to the Rountree Branch Trail which connects to the Mound View State Trail providing access to more than 250 miles of trails.
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 Mound View Park Connector project was awarded $406,816 for the completion of phase 1 of this project. Going forward, Bike Fed staff will continue working with project stakeholders and community members to assist with future phases and expansions of this project.
