The city of Custer is set to pave the portion of the Mickelson Trail within its city limits to help pedestrian traffic.
Custer Mayor Gary Lipp says the city awarded the $137,000 contract for asphalt work to Hills Materials Co. of Rapid City. Following the annual Mickelson Treck scheduled for Sept. 14-16, the company will begin paving the trail.
City officials believe paving the trail is the first step for plans to extend a walking and biking path to a new school campus on the eastern edge of town.
The Mickelson Trail runs from Deadwood to Edgemont. Small sections of the 109-mile path are paved in Deadwood, Hill City and Edgemont.
