City Park’s Marconi Bike Path is inching ever closer to completion after six years of extensive planning and waiting.
Officials have planned a bike path along Marconi Avenue for six years but negotiations between the state and federal government slowed the process. The path is funded with federal money, so the plans required multiple reviews by the state. Once approved by the state, the new plans had to go back to the federal level for approval, then again sent to the state level.
This process of “endless reviews” is why the new trail took so long, according to park CEO Bob Becker.
