Phase two of three to complete connection from Iowa City to Cedar Falls

A long bemoaned gap dubbed the “missing link” in a bike trail network that some day will connect Iowa City to Cedar Falls will shrink, thanks to a federal grant awarded last week.

The Iowa Transportation Commission awarded $450,000 to the Johnson County Conservation Board to help complete phase two of a six-mile void between Solon and Ely, where the Hoover Trail ends, as part of $1.3 million in federal recreational trail grants awarded during a monthly meeting with the Iowa Department of Transportation on Tuesday.

The connector will link “more than 200 miles of trails in Eastern Iowa, including four of Iowa’s largest communities and 10 urban trail systems in Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, Cedar Falls and Waterloo,” according to the grant application.
