Projects in the works

Trestle Trail

This short trail will take riders safely to the east of Lebanon along what was formerly known as Korte Sewald Road. The Lebanon Township Trustees have designated the trail to go from the east end of McAllister St in Lebanon to Oak Grove School Rd south of Lebanon. From there riders can continue east, north and south as far as rolling, lightly traveled country roads can take them. This trail is expected to break ground in 2018.

Trolley Trail

This one-mile trail is about 50 percent funded and will take riders safely to the west along the former Lebanon/St Louis Trolley route from Belleville Street to Reider Road. From there riders can go north or south on country roads to get to destinations such as Scott Air Force Base, O'Fallon, Belleville, Edwardsville and even St Louis on connector roads and trails.
