Residents worried extending road will cut off biking, walking path

MADISON, Wis. - Some residents who live on Madison’s southwest side are worried a city project could cut off a popular biking and walking path.

City of Madison officials are looking into extending Jeffy Trail and connecting it to Raymond Road.

Those in favor of the new road say it will connect neighborhoods, spread out traffic and improve emergency response times by 91 seconds.

“Sometimes 91 seconds can be very important. Sometimes it won’t be important at all, but depending on the nature of the call it could be very relevant,” said Dan McAuliffe, city of Madison planner.

Neighbors who live in the area say they’re worried about an increase in traffic, particularly around the path.
