Plans that would establish the Route 66 trail through McLean County,
Logan County's northern neighbor, are near completion, but Mahler
noted that Logan was the first county to get the signs and didnít
want to waste any time getting them up.
To Logan County's south, a
stretch of the route in Sangamon County has been established with
signage from Williamsville to Sherman.
For many years several individuals have been committed to getting
a bike trail established for Logan County. For the last three years,
Mahler, John Sutton and Dale Bassi have diligently attended Route 66
bike trail meetings with state officials.
Mahler said he has received 40 of the larger signs and another 20
of the smaller ones that will be used to denote the trail.
