New Sidewalk Part of Bigger Project Submitted: 10/26/2012
RHINELANDER - Rhinelander pedestrians are walking around the city a little easier after the completion of a new sidewalk on Eisenhower Parkway.

The effort is bigger than just this one piece of sidewalk, however. In fact, there's an organization committed to expanding walking areas in the city.

"You can find well-worn paths anywhere in Rhinelander where people have walked for a number of years, and those paths need to be turned into sidewalks," says Jackie Cody, from the Oneida County Biking & Walking Trails Council.

The sidewalk cost about $14,000 dollars to put in. More than half of the money came through a grant from the non-profit Lumberjack Council.

The sidewalk between the Highway 17 bypass and Lincoln Street is now almost fully linked.
