Agreement signed for walking trail extension


The city of Sidney signed a supplemental agreement for the Deadwood Trail project with the State Department of Roads at this week’s city council.

This agreement locks in additional funds the department of roads has agreed to supply for the hiking, biking and walking trail project, with the department providing 80 percent of the funds and the city providing 20 percent as well as removing the $500,000 cap for federal funds.

The agreement demonstrates how long this project has been in the works, as the department of roads and the city entered into the original agreement in 2006.

Plans are for the state to bid out the project in late spring. Construction should be completed within the 2014 work season.
