Sturtevant: Getting past the tracks.

Posted by Doug Shidell, January 1st, 2013

Over the past few years, a bike trail has been extended from Racine to Sturtevant. To continue west, however, requires somehow getting past the railroad tracks. Between highways 11 and 20 there is no crossing. Highway 11 is busy with no shoulders, a bicycle hell. Highway 20 is busier but with wide shoulders, doable but not fun, especially for the west-bound traveler who has to cross the highway twice. A possible cheap solution would be placing a barrier separating the shoulder from the roadway, making it a bike path.
