SHILOH – Assembled dignitaries from the Village of Shiloh, St. Clair County Transit District, Scott Air Force Base, and O’Fallon-Shiloh Chamber of Commerce celebrated the opening of the MetroBikeLink connection between the Shiloh Wingate Subdivision (north of Southwestern Illinois College) and Scott Air Force Base.

This 2.9-mile section was the final extension to the now 11-mile MetroBikeLink Trail that runs throughout St. Clair County. Cyclists, walkers and joggers can enjoy this trail year-round, which now connects five MetroLink stations, beginning at Memorial Hospital and ending at Shiloh-Scott. SCCTD and engineering firm TWM collaborated on the entire trail design. The funding was provided by SCCTD and the Metro East Park and Recreation District.
