An extension to the Sioux Falls bike trail has been completed.
A new two-and-one-half-mile stretch provides access for residents of the city's west side to the main loop at 41st Street, 49th Street and the railroad bridge near 57th Street.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned for Thursday afternoon.
Multiple city departments started working to pave the west side of the Big Sioux River levy from Marion Road to 57th Street in front of Sertoma Park after the levy raising project wrapped up late last year,
The city worked with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to widen the top of the levy to accommodate a 10-foot wide asphalt path with gravel shoulders.
