Thanks for posting the update! Looks like it'll be great when the extension is completed.
Yes it will...
Indeed- really hoping to see some progress on this project, too. Haven't heard much since the community meeting last summer.
Marge's Mile is being extended thru Lincolnwood also. It will hook up with the newly extended Skokie Village portion. Still no good road crossings though, except at Oakton.
What is "Marge's Mile"? I looked on Google and didn't find anything.
Marge's Mile is what we call http://www.traillink.com/trail/valley-line-trail.aspx because it was Marge Laurino who worked on it
Length: 1.1 miles
Although the Valley Line Trail is currently short, plans call for it to eventually be extended north through Lincolnwood to meet the Skokie Valley Trail, which is in the process of being extended within the community of Skokie.
That was a former rail line.
Sections in Skokie still have the tracks.
