Two news items for you this morning,
First, the City of Madison has announced on-line that as part of the 2012 SW Bike Path resurfacing project, path shoulders for walking and running will be reconstructed to add a “smooth, stable surface for walkers and runners.” The added width will be about two feet on each side of the paved path. The project is scheduled to begin today September 10, 2012 and be completed in about two and one-half months. For more details on the resurfacing project click here.
Second, the Fall, 2012 issue of the Dudgeon-Monroe Neighborhood Association (DMNA) newsletter, “The Hornblower” is available. In addition to a nice article by Sandy Stark, chair of the DMNA bike path committee, about community-based restoration projects along the SW Bike Path, there is another by Perch Mather, Parks and Gardens committee chair, about the Wingra Park Orchard and citizen and community-based efforts to help with park upkeep.
