TYLER - The City of Tyler held a ceremony today to mark the opening of the South Tyler Hike and Bike Trail.
The concrete trail is two and half miles long, and it connects to the existing Rose Rudman Trail, making the whole trail five miles long.
Eighty-percent of the more than three million dollar project was funded by a grant from the Federal Highway Administration. The other twenty-percent was funded by the half-cent sales tax revenues.
The project started in March 2008, and it just wrapped up this week.
