Otsego officials say the work of jail inmates and other money-saving measures are helping them finish a walking and biking trail in the southwestern Michigan community at a fraction of its estimated cost.
Work is expected to wrap up this summer on the final stretch of the Riverfront Trail. It runs along a former railroad line beside the Kalamazoo River.
Mlive.com says city officials also used ground-up asphalt from a street project to hold down the cost of the project.
The new section is about 3,000 feet long.
