PIKEVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Pikeville City Commission has reached an agreement to bring ziplines to Bob Amos Park.

According to the Appalachian News-Express (http://bit.ly/1grx6ia), the city has entered into a lease agreement with Robert and Joanna Nickell to construct at least eight ziplines at the park.

Construction is expected to begin by Sept. 1.

Officials say Robert Nickell has constructed zip lines around the world. Once he finishes in Pikeville, he's scheduled to go to China to construct what's being billed as the world's highest zip line.
