MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - Some southwest Midland residents now have more room to run and go for a bike ride.

Midland officials officially opened the Beal Parkway extension on Tuesday morning.

It runs from the intersection of Illinois Ave. and Thomason Dr. to Leisure Dr.

The extension was designed to be pedestrian and bike friendly and connects parts of an already existing hike-bike trail to make three continuous miles of trail between Beal and Lancaster parks.
