Carbondale is seeking public comments for the reconstruction of the Piles Fork Greenway Multi-Use Path
The City of Carbondale is beginning plans to reconstruct and expand the Piles Fork Greenway Multi-Use Bike Path.
The path currently runs along Piles Fork Creek, with termini at East Grand Avenue and East Walnut Street and a spur to South Wall Street.
The proposed project includes the following improvements:
Widening the asphalt path from eight to ten feet; extending the path to the north and east, along East Walnut Street, to connect with the Crab Orchard Greenway and enhanced pedestrian, bicycle, and micromobility access & street crossings.
A map of the project is available on the City's Community Development page.
There will be an informational meeting to answer questions and receive comments on the proposed design for the project on September 20th, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Carbondale Fire Station 1 at 600 East College Street.
Attendants arriving by car should park in the city lot across from the fire station, on the south side of College Street. Those with mobility issues may park in the fire station lot off Wall Street.
If you are unable to attend or prefer not to attend the meeting, contact the City’s Community Development Department using any of the following methods:
