New bike path could be built by October

Plans to build a north Merced bike path may finally go from paper to pavement. A long-delayed creekside route through Bellevue Ranch may be built this spring and finished by October, as the city has come to a tentative agreement with one of the massive subdivision's developers. The bike path is estimated to cost just less than $500,000. The City Council on Monday will consider a contract with Woodside Homes that would force the developer to build the mile-and-a-half path and put off other improvements, such as landscaping, for a year.
