Bike trail design and construction oversight were provided for
the Town of Delafield’s 2.35-mile portion of a connector bike trail along Cushing Park Road. The new trail is a key north-south connection between the Lake Country Trail and the Glacial Drumlin Trail. The Town’s portion of the trail begins at the north end of Lapham Peak State Park and connects to the Glacial Drumlin Trail south of USH 18.
A primary goal of the path project was to maintain a tie with the town’s rural character. This goal was accomplished in the design by preserving the existing hills and winding the path for greater rider interest. Project challenges successfully overcome included the design and permitting of dual pipe extensions in the Scuppernong Creek so the path could be built over the pipes; coordination with We Energies to design the path to avoid existing and new utility poles; and designing the trail such that it did not increase the flood stage in the areas adjacent to Scuppernong Creek.
