Project with funding sources from The City of West Allis received a Transportation Enhancement grant for the design and construction of approximately 4.9 miles of an off-road bike and pedestrian trail and on-road bike route. This project installed on-road bike route signage through the City of West Allis downtown district. The trail is being designed in accordance with Wisconsin Bicycle Facility Design Handbook. This trail provides a link between the New Berlin Trail at the westerly limits, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) Hank Aaron Trail (HAST) at the easterly limits, and a connection to the Milwaukee County Oak Leaf Trail.
Off-road segments run parallel through the We Energies utility corridor with a small section utilizing a permanent limited easement from Union Pacific Railroad. This HMA paved path has 3 at-grade crossings which were granted after conducting an Office of Commissioner of Railroads (OCR) hearing.
