OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- The North Omaha Bike Trail project is in its final planning stages, according to organizations involved in the effort.

The project is expected to connect a network of bike lanes and pedestrian trails from Metro Community College's location at 30th and Fort streets to the downtown riverfront redevelopment project.

Among other features, it will include three separate trails in North Omaha and a redeveloped "light bridge" along Pratt Street replacing the current pedestrian bridge.

The Omaha Planning Department, the Sherwood Foundation, National Park Service, and Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District have collaborated on the project.
