(AP) A western Pennsylvania county is exploring the possibility of extending a public trail system to the Flight 93 National Memorial.


The Daily American (http://bit.ly/12BCQSX ) reports Sunday that Somerset County will seek proposals for a feasibility study on the best way to extend the Great Allegheny Passage bike trail north to the Flight 93 National Memorial.


The memorial honors the passengers and crew members killed when the plane crashed into a field on Sept. 11, 2001, after they fought back against hijackers.


Somerset County has obtained more than $100,000 in grants and donations for the project. Officials expect to hire a firm to conduct the study sometime this fall.


National Parks of Western Pennsylvania Deputy Superintendent Keith Newlin says he's happy to see the effort.
