Design plans are nearly done for recreational trail from Woods Road to Janesville Road, and construction will begin in spring; Janesville Road work won't begin in earnest however until mid-June.
The Racine Avenue recreational trail, which will close the loop around the downtown area, is 95 percent done with the design phase of planning. This means that once spring arrives, it's likely that crews will be at work to build the trail on the west side of Racine between Woods Road and Janesville Road.

Anywhere a paved recreational trail has been placed in Muskego, response is immediate and ultimately popular. As the stretch of trail along Woods Road west to Racine Avenue has been completed, bikers are already making use of that trail, and are asking when the last piece of the trail puzzle going south can be completed. The answer is 2013, and if a proposed partnership works out between the city and Waukesha County, it will cost $70,000 less. The Public Works Committee met Monday night, and Director of Public Works Dave Simpson outlined the proposal, which would keep the design and survey work 'in house.' With Racine Avenue being a county road, the offer was made to utilize county staff to assist the city in developing a design plan and …
