    Very excited about this! Will it expand further?

  2. Casey says:

    We are so happy this finally got done. Thank you everyone who help transform this area.
    Hopefully next year they’ll reinstall the performance areas and increase connectivity by opening connections on the westside of the trail.

    @Beer Baron
    I asked the same question and was told that it would be highly unlikely because north of the current termination point is Glendale. It would still be a great idea that would connect the neighborhood with Lincoln Park and perhaps extend it all the way to Teutonia.

    Whoa! Over a million dollars for less than a mile? That seems really high to me. Admittedly I have nothing to base that opinion on though.

  5. Casey says:

    I think the reason the cost was so high is because of scales of economy and an old railroad bridge was involved. I’m sure if the trail was two miles long the cost wouldn’t have been has high on a per mile basis.
