Possible bicycle train connection between La Crosse and La Crescent

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Plans for a bike trail connecting La Crosse and La Crescent are moving forward.

La Crosse's Bike and Pedestrian Advisory Committee approved the bike trail improvements this morning.

The improvements would connect the 'Wagon Wheel bike Trail', which ends near the state border of Minnesota and Wisconsin with the city of La Crosse.

As part of the plan, sidewalks would be widened and signs would placed to help direct cyclists.

The planning department staff says there is a need for this bike trail.

"As more development happens over in that corridor too and more tourism in the summer, it's important for us to make a safe corridor," said Jack Zabrowski with the City of La Crosse planning department.

The plans needs to be approved by the City of La Crosse's Common Council *and* La Crescent's City Council before starting.
