A key missing link in Middleton’s South Fork Trail was completed on Friday, according to the city.
The finished section makes it possible for bicyclists and pedestrians to travel between Greenway Center and the golf course property without having to use Pleasant View Road, according to a release from Middleton Wednesday.
Prior to last week, trail users could only travel along the South Fork of Pheasant Branch Creek to Greenway Boulevard next to Raven Software.
Starting in early August, the city said it will initiate a project to complete the one-block gap in the South Fork Trail between Terrace Avenue (near Esser Pond) and University Avenue.
The city said it plans to complete the block in October, and bicyclists and pedestrians will then be able to travel entirely via trails between northeast Middleton (near Orchid Heights Park) and Pleasant View Golf Course, a distance of more than five miles.
