The six-week closure of 130th Street east of Perry ended Tuesday with the completion of the High Trestle Trail connector bridge over Beaver Creek, the Dallas County Secondary Roads Department announced.
The one-mile stretch of 130th Street between L Place and M Avenue formed the fourth phase of construction of the HTT-RRVT connector trail. The cost of phase four was about $669,300.
Construction of the third phase is also nearing completion between Quinlan and R avenues west of Woodward at an estimated cost of $569,000.
The Dallas County Conservation Board failed to land the requested grant funding from the Iowa Department of Transportation State Recreational Trails program for 2022. The board sought $1 million to extend the trail along Beaver Creek from M Avenue to U.S. Highway 169, a distance of a little more than one mile.
