"$8 million, 2.5-mile"

That would be a total embarrassment if anyone on the Dane
County Board could feel shame.

(we are just over the County line from them now.)

They spent $8 million and got a trail. That's better than spending $8
million and getting nothing.

I hope it fares better than the similar one in Akron, Ohio.

I am repeatedly astounded by the price tags on bike facilities. I guess
I'm just out of touch with the cost of things.

But I was on a village committee that got three federal grants for three
different bike or pedestrian projects. Ultimately we had to forego the
last one, for what would have been a nice creekside walking (not bike)
path. It's a long and sordid NIMBY story.

But the head of our Streets Department advised me that for the next such
project, just let them do it without a federal grant. He felt the
federal requirements added so much cost that the village would come out
cheaper just doing the job entirely with local money.

That's a pretty low standard you're using.

Under what real life scenario would they have spend $8 million and
gotten nothing?

Probably a grand idea. I suggest that during your next election
campaign you announce that you plan on building 8 million dollar
bicycle paths.... "and as a result folks, taxes will be increased a
bit".

In Dane County that's called 'just another Tuesday'.

"CAD 9.2 million and all we got was a bridge?"

Actually, it gets a lot of use and is quite pleasant this time of year.
