St. Martin of Tours & S. 116th Street Trail Design

Funding: In 2020, the City was unsuccessful in obtaining a Wisconsin Department of Transportation grant for this project.  The Franklin Common Council authorized GRAEF to perform the full design with the intention of funding the project with accumulated Park Impact Fees in 2021. Construction funding was removed from the 2021 budget with the instruction to continue design and reapply for grant funding for 2022 (applications due in late 2021).

Project Status: GRAEF is continuing the development of plans.  Topographical and environmental surveys have been completed and design is at about 30% complete  The City has started discussions with the Archdiocese for acquisition of an easement around and through the St. Martin of Tour parish property.  A landowner has agreed to provide land for a trail head at the crossing of W. Ryan Road if the future WisDOT grant is received.  Applicable permitting has begun.

Questions: Please email comments or questions to City Engineer Glen Morrow or our Graef consultant Mary Beth Pettit. A Public Information Meeting will be scheduled sometime this summer; notices will be distributed/posted.  Project exhibits remain posted in the hallway of City Hall (across from the Clerk's Office).
