(Neb.) - Aerial tram to be built at Nebraska fairgrounds
GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska State Fair officials say an aerial tram will be built on the Grand Island fairgrounds at Fonner Park in time for the 2012 fair.
The Sky Tram will be 40 feet in the air and run more than 400 yards, from the Exhibition Building to the Cattle Barn.
Executive director Joseph McDermott says construction will begin next month.
He says the Sky Tram will be a permanent feature at the fairgrounds but will run only during the State Fair. This year's fair opens Aug. 24 and ends Sept. 3.
The tram will be owned and operated by Wade Shows, which will be the fair's carnival provider starting next year.
