Nearly $53 million will be spent on improving bike paths, walking trails and other preservation projects across the state, thanks to a federally funded grant.

Governor Pat Quinn announced the investment projects Saturday.

They include about $800,000 to fund a complete rehab of the Riverside train station.

In Evanston, more than a million dollars will be spent on a Sheridan Road-Chicago Avenue bike path.

And the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County will receive more than a million dollars to construct a new trail and grade separation at County Farm Road.
