HELENA-WEST HELENA, Ark. (AP) —Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson and the Walton Family Foundation have announced a multi-million dollar effort to complete a biking and pedestrian trail in eastern Arkansas.
Now, about 44 miles of The Delta Heritage Trail State Park are complete, and officials hope to invest a total of $40 million to complete another 40-mile section, which would create one of the longest dedicated pedestrian and bicycle routes in Arkansas.
The funding includes a $20 million matching grant from the Walton Family Foundation, and the state is applying for federal grants to match the grant.
