The Community Development office would like to thank the Wisconsin Department of Transportation for their help in assembling data, planning material, design specifications, and graphics used in the creation of the Prairie du Chien Area Bicycle/ Pedestrian Trail Plan.  In particular, we would like to thank Beth Price of the La Crosse DOT office for providing traffic counts and planning studies; and Tom Huber of the WisDOT Urban Planning Section for furnishing facility improvement graphics.  In some sections, our plan uses language and recommendations from the Prairie du Chien Area Transportation Study, the WisDOT Wisconsin Bicycle Planning Guidance, and the WisDOT Wisconsin Bicycle Facility Design Manual.


We also would like to thank Paul Porvaznik for illustrations, Vierbicher Associates for providing maps, Delta 3 Engineering for City Loop East cost estimates, and Mark Roffers of Vandewalle & Associates for his consultation on bicycle trail issues.
