DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The first phase of a project to build walking trails that would connect Danville, Junction City and Perryville in Boyle County is expected to start in the spring.
 
The Advocate-Messenger (http://bit.ly/1gIuksZ) reports that Jennifer Kirchner, executive director of the Convention and Visitors Bureau, gave the Boyle County Fiscal Court an update on the project during a meeting last week.
 
Besides increasing accessibility, Kirchner says the trails will hopefully strengthen tourism in the region by appealing to bicyclists and other outdoor enthusiasts.
 
She says the trails could also provide educational opportunities by enabling outdoor classrooms, as well as give students a better way to get to school and other locations.
