Headlines are quick hits from media outlets from Missouri and around the world. Follow the headline link for the full story. The source of this headline says:

City leaders approved an ordinance last week to secure funding for the proposed Busch Creek Greenway biking and walking path. . . .

The path would start at Jefferson and Eighth streets and head east before ultimately connecting with the eastern entrance of the Rotary Riverfront Trail. The path would run next to the skate park at Optimist Park and the dog park as well. . . .

The plan calls for a mixture of on- and off-street trails. The project would involve the city constructing a 10-foot path along Busch Creek on city-owned property.

MoBikeFed comment: This trail well help connect more of the city of Washington directly to the popular Riverfront Trail. The Riverfront Trail will connect directly to the Katy Trail once construction on the new Hwy 47 Missouri River Bridge is complete. Additionally, the Riverfront Trail is planned as part of the link between the Katy Trail and Rock Island Trail State Park.
