North Elba backs off on bike trail

Listen to this story
As the debate over the rail corridor in the Tri-Lakes continues, one municipality is backing off a plan to construct a recreational path alongside the train tracks between Lake Placid and Saranac Lake.

The town of North Elba has learned that it cannot consolidate a pair of federal grants in order to complete phase one of the project, which would construct a bike path from Lake Placid to Ray Brook.

The town's plans were popular among local cyclists, but some opponents of the rail corridor wanted officials to wait for the future of the tracks to become clearer.
