Glacial Drumlin to Capital City Connector Trail
Dane County, the Village of Cottage Grove, City of Madison, Wisconsin Department of Transportation and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources are beginning plans to complete the last missing segment of the Glacial Drumlin State Trail beginning at the I-90 bridge in Madison and extending east to the existing Glacial Drumlin Trail Trailhead in the Village of Cottage Grove. Between the interstate and Cottage Grove, the proposed trail will generally parallel the existing railroad corridor and is anticipated to be a combination of paved trail, bridges and boardwalks. In the Village of Cottage Grove the trail is expected to traverse through Phoebe Bakken Memorial Park and Fireman’s Park before reaching the existing Glacial Drumlin State Trail trailhead located on CTH N.
Dane County Parks and their consultant CORRE, INC. have started the first phase of planning and design for the trail segment between I90 and Buckeye Road. Planning for this phase of the project is anticipated to be completed by the end of the summer in 2019. Additional land acquisition is necessary to complete the remaining segment between Buckeye Road and Vilas Road.
