Badger State Trail Detour Press Release - updated



For Immediate Release

Contact: Cory Horton, City of Fitchburg 

Phone: (608) 270-4260 



Members of the press, please see the statement below regarding the detour of the Badger State Trail from March 20th through July 1st.


“A small segment of the Badger State Trail will be temporarily closed, from McKee Road south to Lacy Road, to allow for the construction of a new sanitary sewer and a new electric service. The first phase of the closure will close the path from McKee Road to Lacy Road from March 20th to April 3rd. The second phase of the closure will be from Marketplace Drive to Lacy Road from April 3rd to July 1st.

There will be a marked detour during the period that the trail is closed (see attached map).

The sanitary sewer and electric service is needed to serve this area of Fitchburg. After construction of the sewer is complete, the Badger State Trail from Marketplace Drive to Lacy Road will be pulverized and a new asphalt path surface will be constructed. The City understands the importance of the trail system to all of its users, and the goal is to minimize the amount of time it is closed. It is also a priority to maintain safe conditions during the detour period and the interim period that it will be open during the construction activity. Thank you for your understanding.”
