Idaho cities seek to link
BURLEY (AP) - Officials in the south-central Idaho cities of Burley and Heyburn are considering plans to connect pathways between the cities that are on opposite sides of the Snake River.
Each city has completed first phases of plans involving miles of greenbelt park and pathways to take in views of the river, and now officials are looking at connecting the networks to entice recreationists.
Officials say a connected pathway linking the cities at the Burley-Heyburn Bridge has the potential to become a catalyst for development.
Officials say they eventually want to link the pathways at the Overland Bridge as well to create a nearly 10-mile loop for hikers and bikers.
