GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

It's a big step forward for bicycle enthusiasts looking for more bike path opportunities in the southern Genesee County area.

The Genesee County Metropolitan Planning Commission announced one-point-two million dollars in funding to connect the region to the statewide Iron Belle Trail, the longest statewide trail in the nation, extending from Belle Isle in Detroit to Ironwood in the Upper Peninsula.

The Gen. County portion of the bike path will stretch from Genesee Road to Vassar Road.  

The cycling community has grown in recent years in Genesee County.  Many supporters have called for construction of a network of paths and trails.

Construction is scheduled for 2017.
