NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - For bike riders in North Platte, there may be a new trail to the area. During the weekly Lincoln County Commissioners meeting, the Lincoln County Commissioners discuss the construction of a bike trail along State Farm Road. The addition of the new bike trail will provide better walking trails for kids and people who live nearby.

“Well it’s huge. It’s been a gap. It’s been a very unsafe area. There are a lot of people that walk and bike in that area, There’s a lot of people that live there in the subdivision. People that want to exercise and walk to the end of State Farm, “said Judy Peterson of North Platte Trails Network.

Based on the location, Peterson said that the new bike trail will make people safer while exercising.

“This is really important to get the trust section in there and keep people safe,” Peterson said.

The bike trail is set to be completed by the end of the year.
