SEDALIA, Mo. (AP) _ The Missouri Department of Natural Resources and he Federal Highway Administration are funneling $2.3 million into connecting the final gap along the Katy Trail State Park.

The Sedalia Democrat reports the City of Sedalia recently received a $1 million grant from the federal agency’s recreational trails program to convert portions of city roads and sidewalks into a new trail path. The Missouri department is investing $1.3 million into the project outside city limits and covering 20 percent matching costs for the city’s grant.

The Katy Trail breaks off north of Sedalia, directing visitors onto a road with signs until it reconnects at the Katy Depot.

City Administrator Kelvin Shaw says it’s dangerous for bicyclists, horseback riders and pedestrians to share streets with vehicles.
