RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - There is a proposal to extend a bike path along the east side of Cambell Street between Rapid Creek and East Omaha Street.

It will connect to the sidewalk that goes toward Western Dakota Tech.

The extended path will be less than a mile long and 10 feet wide to provide plenty of room for people along the busy street.

The Public Works Committee agreed to the project should not exceed the price tag of more than $33,000.

“It’s a busy street Western Dakota Tech is over there, so we have a lot of students who walk over there as well as all those businesses. There isn’t an established sidewalk there,” Melissa Petersen, the City’s park landscape manager, said.

The city council will decide on the bike path extension at the next meeting on Monday.

If approved, the project would go to bid, and construction would begin in the spring of 2021.
