Workers from Strata were installing a new bike path on 42nd Street that extends the paved trail from 17th Avenue South and connects it with another new path along 24th Avenue South in Grand Forks Monday.

The new path is about a half-mile long and 10 feet wide, and was paid for with the help of federal grant supporting alternative transportation projects.

City Engineer Al Grasser said the path is offset from 42nd Street to accommodate future widening of the road.

 He said the city would probably apply for more grant money to extend the path farther next year.
