Eau Claire County is looking for a grant to build a bike trail along McKinley Road.
The county is applying for a Safe Routes to School grant. The idea is to create a bike path along McKinley from Highway 312 to River Prairie Drive. Planners say that will give kids at both the McKinley Charter School and Northwoods Elementary a safe way to get to and from school. The total cost of the new bike trail would be about 700-thousand dollars. Eau Claire County would have to come-up with about 150-thousand dollars of that money.
