The Allegheny County Airport Authority Board has voted to approve an extension to the Montour Trail that would enable cyclists to bike to the airport. There has been interest in this trail extension for some time but it has been put on hold because of post 9/11 security concerns. The trail would not enter the airfield or even go near it but would end at the land terminal. There need to be some improvements made to the road and signs and crosswalks need to be installed before the trail is open to the public.
