The 30th Street Corridor project is a vision for a paved, shared-use trail from Havenwoods State Forest to Hank Aaron State Trail near American Family Field. Also a part of the Rails to Trails Route of the Badger, when completed, it would span 6.7 miles, increasing interconnectivity and active transportation options for underserved parts of Milwaukee. This section of trail would offer not only a much-appreciated route for walkers, bikers, shoppers, and commuters, but would also serve as a community asset that promotes public health, safety, and economic development for Milwaukee neighborhoods that have been overlooked for years.
Bike Fed has been working closely with State Representative Evan Goyke and Rails to Trails Conservancy on pursuing funding opportunities, increasing awareness and buy-in, and engaging community members, business owners, and leaders on the importance of the project.
Community buy-in is of utmost importance to get this project moving forward. Your local, municipal, county, and state elected officials need to hear from you that you’d like to see this important connector be brought to life. You can find a full list of the people who represent you here.
