CHICAGO – McHenry County Conservation District’s Ridgefield Trace Bike Path is among 120 bicycle, pedestrian and landscape improvement projects that will receive nearly $90 million in federal funding, Gov. Pat Quinn’s office announced Friday. The Ridgefield Trace project was awarded $934,930.
The Ridgefield Trace bike path goes 2 miles from McHenry County College along a ComEd right-of-way nearly to Oak Street in Crystal Lake. Plans are to continue the trail from a loop near Oak Street to Veteran Acres Park, and eventually southwest to the intersection of Lake Avenue and Route 47 in Woodstock.
