Associated Press - April 22, 2011 4:35 AM ET

ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - A 1.5-mile recreation path is moving forward in St. Johnsbury after 19 years of planning.

The town is taking construction bids for the project, called Three Rivers Transportation Path.

Proposals are due by May 18.

The Caledonian Record says most of the estimated $3.5 million project is expected to be built this year. It will run along a former rail bed and connect to the proposed Lamoille Valley Rail Trail between St. Johnsbury to Swanton
