Everyone will pay for the Underpass

By: Diane Benjamin

I posted this story on April 16: https://blnnews.com/2021/04/16/hey-normal/

Since Federal and State grants will be paying for most of Normal’s new FANCY bike trail under the railroad tracks in Uptown, even if you don’t live in Normal you have a right to comment.

Buzzing around I overheard comments have been largely negative. Bikers are being called on to even the count.

Want your tax money spent on lavish?

Mention Section 4(f) and the overall project.

I wonder if Chris Koos is salivating yet? https://blnnews.com/2021/04/24/what-do-you-call-a-politician-who-votes-his-pocketbook/

  1. Sorry we drove you out of business or from being gainfully employed, but here’s a pretty bike path that goes under the choo choo train tracks for which we’ll be sending you the bill. Hugs and kisses -Pam

  2. But the underpass is an economic driver. Rivian came because of the bike trails. Bike sales will flourish if we build the underpass. Mayor Koos

  3. I have ridden my bike through this part of the trail weekly for years.
    Not once have I thought to myself – I wish I could cross the tracks here and save myself about 100 yards of pedaling.
    Not once. 100% frivolous.
