Currently, the local BMX track features a closed sign citing safety concerns but not for long. Its circumstances are quickly changing as the result of Los Alamos County approving $100,000 for the project during its Nov. 12 meeting.
 
With this approval, the hopes are high that next summer, the BMX track will be back in business and hosting U.S. BMX-sanctioned events.
