(Updated May 23, 2019):
Reopening this section of trail as soon as possible is a priority. Staff assesses the trail status each week.
Due to construction on multiple projects in the Iowa River Landing which directly impact the trail, at times the closed trail section has been under 20 feet of soil. The timing of each project, as well as the weather, affects the timeline.
As soon as construction is complete on the projects which will use the dirt stockpiled in the area, the trail connection will be restored.
Beginning Tuesday morning, October 17, 2017, the Iowa River Trail between the Iowa River Power Restaurant parking lot and the E. 7th Street and Quarry Road intersection will be closed until further notice. The closure is required due to ongoing earthwork and storm sewer installation within the Iowa River Landing that will directly impact the existing trail. E. 7th Street remains closed to through traffic. An alternate route is available using 1st Avenue, E. 9th Street, and Quarry Road.
