Johnson County’s multimillion dollar trail project nears completion and shows a vision of a more connected Iowa.

As spring rolls in, Johnson County is close to completing several miles of trails to connect rural communities throughout the county and beyond.

The paved trails would be used for foot and bicycle traffic, a safety precaution to keep cyclists off the busiest roads.

Neil Shatek, project manager for the Iowa River Trail, said the project is about 85 percent complete. The trail paving began in March 2018, and preliminary work, including tree clearing, started in 2017.

“It was our intent to get done with the project last construction season, but with delays and wet weather, we didn’t end up getting finished last fall,” Shatek said.
