In-ground LEDs light way on bike path | Politics
Fitchburg leaders and a local cycling group gathered at Edenberry Street and the Capital City State Trail in Fitchburg Tuesday to debut the trail’s new lights.
The city of Fitchburg said a wooded, quarter-mile-long section stretch of the Capital City State Trail has been outfitted with 30 LED lights to help guide cyclists. The solar-powered lights are mounted in-ground to help bikers see the center line along the curvy path.
According to a joint news release from Fitchburg and a locally based bike business, Saris Cycling Group, Saris donated both the lights and the epoxy for project and the city provided the labor.
The installation of the lights was a partnership between Fitchburg, Saris and Dane County Parks.
Fitchburg said the lights are the first of their kind in Wisconsin and only the second to be completed in the nation.
