WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - A decision has been made on the next expansion of the Black River Trail near Watertown and leaders want your feedback.

The Watertown-Jefferson County Transportation Council has just finished a study to see where and how the trail will expand.

After looking at multiple options, the study concluded the trail, which spans to Fort Drum and is 85 percent off-road, is the best option.

The expansion aims to be federally funded through infrastructure and transportation improvement programs.

Project leaders hope the public will take a look at the study and make comments online.
