Bike trail at Craighead Forest Park gets partial funding

Posted: Updated:

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department is helping make a new bike and pedestrian trail a reality at Craighead Forest Park in Jonesboro.

According to Mayor Harold Perrin, the AHTD approved transferring excess funds from another city project to the new, 12 foot wide bike trail.

$700,000 was left over from grant money that will finish up a bike trail Allen Park to Main Street.  It currently ends at Matthews.

Perrin said those funds won't completely fund the trail, but will pay for a sizeable portion of the costs.

The city plans to request more money from AHTD to complete the trail.
