COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Construction has begun on Covington’s former impound lot to transform it into a BMX bike track.
The Kentucky Enquirer reports (http://cin.ci/1I5t40T) more than 175 dump trucks worth of dirt have been brought in. The dirt will soon get molded into a BMX bike track full of hills and curves.
The lot, located in the Latonia neighborhood, already had a building, fence and lights installed.
Jason Reser, president of NKY BMX Development Inc., says the track will be ready in about five months. The nonprofit is building and managing the track.
Reser hopes the track can host major competitive races, including one national BMX race per year that could draw 6,000-8,000 people.
Reser plans to have the track open four days a week, 40 weeks a year.
