PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island officials say $10 million has been set aside to fund 10 bike path projects in the state.

The Providence Journal (https://bit.ly/2m0D1Zx ) reports that three extensions are planned for the Blackstone River Bikeway to add more than 2 ½ miles of off-road trails in Pawtucket, Central Falls, Cumberland, Woonsocket and North Smithfield.

Officials also plan to expand the South County Bike Path, building a more-than two-mile connection to the University of Rhode Island and a quarter-mile link to the Narragansett Community Center.

Other projects include a mile-long path along the Newport Secondary Rail Line, urban bike route markings across the state, bike lane markings in Westerly and on-road bicycle markings on the Jamestown-Verrazzano Bridge ramps.
