South Dakota State Railboard Board tabled the rail bed proposal from Tabor to Pierre

PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- The South Dakota State Railroad Board put off a decision on a citizens group request to convert an unused rail bed from Tabor to Platte to a walking – biking trail.

Bob Foley of Tyndall, with the group: “Friends of the Tabor to Platte Rail to Trail” told the board they want to do a study of the conversion.

State Department of Transportation Secretary Joel Jundt recommended the board wait on the proposal.

Board member Jon Kirby of Sioux Falls says it’s a good idea to wait.

The board asked the group to come back with more information at their December meeting.
