SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Nebraska (KTIV) – A new bike trail is giving kids a safer route to and from school in South Sioux City, Nebraska.
The Atokad Bike Trail officially opened for cyclists Friday morning.
The new route is an extension of a long trail in South Sioux City that now extends to 22 miles in length.
The total cost was $324,600.
“We think this is a nice step for South Sioux City to grow positively to attract people to come here and we are going to continue to build trails like this and make it a better place to live,” Rod Koch, South Sioux City Mayor.
Koch says he hopes one day there will be a trail to connect the tri-state areas of Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota.
