bike-path-090922.jpgEvanston has received a second state grant to help rebuild the lakefront bike path.

The new grant of $720,000 was funded through the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz says the state funded only 27 of more than 332 grant applications it received from local governments.

The city had previously received a $550,000 grant from the state’s Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program for the project, which is scheduled for construction next spring.

Information on the total projected cost of the project — which would rebuild the path from Lee Street to the Northwestern campus — was not immediately available.
