Racine County Announces Rails-to-Trails Funding

Share This:

On October 13, Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave announced a $500,000 investment proposed in the County Budget toward the Rails-to-Trails project that crosses through downtown Union Grove! The funding would leverage $1 million previously designated in the state’s Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program and complete the land acquisition needed for the project. The acquisition of the 11-mile section of the Canadian Pacific Railway between Sturtevant, Mount Pleasant, Yorkville, Union Grove and Dover represents a significant step forward in the Route of the Badger trail network’s completion. When complete, the corridor will nearly connect east to west across Racine County and provide 56 miles of uninterrupted trail within the Route of the Badger network. It is anticipated that once the land acquisition is completed, the trail would be completed within five years.
