The City constructed a mile long, 8 foot wide concrete trail along the north side of Jacoby Drive in 2002. The 5” concrete walkway included about 4,600 square yards of pavement.
The project included a pre-engineered steel truss bridge with wood decking and Corten steel over a dry run creek in the project area.
Funding of the project was with a Surface Transportation Project grant from the Iowa DOT. The project was bid through a State letting. Project design and construction services were provided by Gibbs Engineering and Surveying, P.C. following State guidelines.
The City has extensively landscaped the trail and constructed a brick gateway structure to enhance the area and welcome people to the City.
