IDOT Awards City of Carbondale $2M for Bike Path

The City of Carbondale has been awarded $2M in funding through the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program (ITEP) to extend the bike and pedestrian path along Route 13 from Murphysboro Road to Wood Road.

When complete, the 1.8-mile concrete path will allow cyclists and pedestrians the same direct access that drivers have to various medical offices, an urgent care facility, the Carbondale Farmers Market, and several neighborhoods and apartment complexes on the west side of Carbondale.

The bike path extension builds upon the regional plan to connect Murphysboro, Carbondale, and Marion with bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure.
