BARRE, Vt. (AP) - City officials in Vermont plan to re-apply for $1.8 million in federal and state funding that would help finance the construction of a regional bike path in Barre.

The Times-Argus reports (http://bit.ly/1J45SQq ) city councilors unanimously endorsed the proposal earlier this week. It’s scheduled to be submitted to the state Agency of Transportation by Friday afternoon.

If approved, plans for a bike path that would run from one end of the city to the other could be halfway finished by the end of next year. The new application would finance the longest and most expensive portion of the city path.

The money officials are seeking account for nearly 50 percent of the $4 million in Bicycle and Pedestrian Grant Program funding expected to be available in the state this year.
