perfect time to visit the Ozaukee Interurban Trail.
Cooler weather, colorful trees and family friendly

Trail Project Update–
Due to only
receiving one bid, the Ozaukee Interurban Trail
Advisory Council is working towards re-bidding the
project as a steel fabricated truss bridge. For
additional information, please read the article
“Interurban bike bridge path takes another twist”
The Trail has been designated as Great WI Birding
and Nature Trail and the Ozaukee Interurban Trail
Advisory Council has been working with a consultant
to develop a birding guide for the Trail. It is
anticipated that this guide will be completed in the
Spring of 2008.
Bike Racks on Busses–
Interurban Trail Advisory Council has forwarded a
recommendation to the Ozaukee County Public Works
Committee to support the installation of bike racks
on Ozaukee County’s busses. The Public Works
Committee voted unanimously to continue moving this
concept forward by researching cost estimates, grant
opportunities and exploring implementation issues.
The Milwaukee County Transit Committee voted 4-1 to
apply for grants to implement a bike rack on bus
program for Milwaukee County. Information on this
decision can be found
For an example of a bus bike rack system, please
visit the City of Madison’s Rack & Roll Bike Rack

Motorists- Share the Road with Bicycles!
Bicycles are vehicles, just like
automobiles, busses, and trucks, and
bicyclists have the same rights and
responsibilities as the drivers of any other
vehicle. Help prevent bicycle-motor vehicle
crashes and fatalities by following these
- Give bicyclists at least 3 feet of
clearance when passing.
- When turning left, watch for and
yield to oncoming bicyclists just as you
would yield to oncoming motorists.
- When turning right, yield to any
bicyclist traveling on your right. Do
not try to pass a bicyclist if you are
planning to turn right at the next
intersection or driveway.
- Be aware of children riding
bicycles. A child riding in the street
may suddenly swerve in front of you or a
child on the sidewalk may suddenly ride
out in front of you.
- Bicyclists are permitted to ride two
abreast on any street if other traffic
is not impeded.
Bicyclists must ride on the right, in
the same direction as other traffic.
- Bicyclists passing a parked, stopped
or moving vehicle are also required to
give at least 3 feet of clearance.
