Sidewalks and bike lanes may not seem like a big deal, but it is for those who use public roads to recreate. The Duluth Avenue/County Highway C reconstruction will include new bike lanes and sidewalks when it is finished later this summer. Since the project used federal funds to complete, the installation of the sidewalks, which go the entire length of the roadway, was mandatory. Bicyclist Paul Anschutz applauds the new addition, saying it represents the city of Sturgeon Bay’s comprehensive plan recommendation.
Anschutz says the sidewalks will also make it safer for area kids to walk to school and improves access to the Ice Age Trail. The Duluth Avenue/County Highway C project is expected to conclude by the middle of August.
