City Proposes Improvements to Capital City Trail

Intersections ordered closed by State Railroad Office not addressed in plan

The City of Madison is eyeing improvements to the Capital City Trail bike path and is seeking feedback from residents. District 6 Alder Marsha Rummel along with traffic committees from MNA and SASYNA neighborhood associations requested the draft report.

The plan examines each intersection that crosses a street in District 6 (from Blair to Waubesa Street), recommending improvements at 13 intersections including raised pavement, added sineage, bump outs, and the yet-to-be-approved diagonal crossing at the Atwood//Dunning intersection.

The plan notes but does not address street closings at Livingston and Brearly due to a ruling last year by the state Office of the Commissioner of Railroads. The City has sued the state over the closures and the case is still in the early stages.

The Pedestrian Bike Motor Vehicle Commission will discuss the draft plan Tuesday February 27, 2013 at 5 p.m. in Room 260 of the Madison Municipal Building, 215 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd
