    MoPac- Lincoln to Omaha

    I have not ridden to Omaha yet this year but have multiple times in the past. I was wondering if anyone has recently and can update me on how complete the MoPac trail is.
    Last year it was complete out to Wabash. It also started back up on the north side of the Platte River on Highway 50 and continued until Springfield. Are these two portions connected yet?
    Thanks for any help!
    Jeff.

    I dunno if it's ready yet. They're kinda taking their time. But I know the highway runs parallel to I80 almost, and has a wide enough shoulder to allow a bicycle.

    The final link is not done yet due to legal scuffles hanging it up. About 10 years ago or so the railbanking effort for the rail to trail conversion failed and now a route to complete the trail must be found. Rural landowners are protesting the route selected by the Lower Platte South NRD. It's been in the paper a couple times this fall.

    There is a time to resign oneself
    to old age and infirmity. You first.
