City of Carbondale Receives $2 Million Dollar Grant

The City of Carbondale was recently awarded $2 million in funding from the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program. The funding will be utilized to extend the city’s bike and pedestrian path along Route 13, from Murphysboro Road to Wood Road. When the project is completed the 1.8-mile concrete path will allow cyclists and pedestrians the same direct access that motorists have to various medical offices, an urgent care facility, the Carbondale Farmers Market and several neighborhoods and apartment complexes on the western side of the city. This bike path extension builds up the regional plan to join Murphysboro, Carbondale and Marion.
