Sherman / Williamsville Bike and Hike Trail connecting the two sister Villages
The Villages of Sherman and Williamsville are in the planning stage for a 4 ½ mile multi-use Bike and Hike Trail connecting the two Villages. The planning for the project is being paid for by a federal $269,000 grant which is administered by the State under the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program (ITEP). The Villages hope that in the future the trail could be a component of the Route 66 Trail, which connects Chatham and Springfield and Sherman.  The Village is currently pursuing further funding under the ITEP program for construction costs associated with the trail of which $50 million will be available for successful grant awardees.

Status Report as of March 2018.  The project is due to be let for bidding this summer with construction to begin this fall according to officials of IDOT.
