FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CARBONDALE – The City of Carbondale has been awarded $2,000,000 in funding through the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program (ITEP) to extend the City's 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.

For more information, contact the City of Carbondale's Public Relations Officer Roni LeForge at 618-559-1939.

 “Carbondale prides itself on providing its visitors, students, businesses and residents with a unique mix of edge and ease. It’s a cultural town, yet free of pretense, embracing the great outdoors as readily as urban sophistication. Here, we are open to new ideas, experiences and cultures, so you are encouraged to both express yourself and be yourself, in all ways. That’s Carbondale…All Ways Open… for family, fun, business, new ideas and a bright tomorrow.”
