Is the trail flooded in any of the low lying areas such as West of Perry, East of Adel and North of Redfield?

Rode from Waukee to Redfield today and got to see and use the new concrete approaches to some of the bridges as well as a couple of the new paved crossings over gravel roads. Very nice!

Thanks for the update - was wondering the condition of the trail! Hopefully the rest of it is just as good!

Rode from Waukee to Dallas Center today. Trail is snow-free. There's a cool new art installation about halfway on the route. Riders won't be able to miss the water tank sitting trailside as a result of the horrible winds this winter. I bet the farmer it belongs to won't think to check the bike trail!

Found on the Dallas County Conservation website: The Dallas County Conservation Board will be working on a trail bridge on the RRVT located between H Avenue and I Avenue between the towns of Adel and Redfield. This section of trail between H Ave. and I Ave. will be closed starting Monday morning October 7, and is estimated to be opened up again Wednesday, October 9.
Do not enter this area of construction and repair.
