Through the consent agenda, the board approved reimbursement requests to the Iowa Department of Transportation Heart for segments of paving of the Heart of Iowa trail.

The Heart of Iowa Trail currently connects the communities all across the south side of Story County — Slater, Huxley, Cambridge, Maxwell and Collins, and efforts to pave the trail have been ongoing since 2016.

The indicated pavement for the reimbursements is between county road 38 and 535th Avenue.

A large section of the trail from Slater to Huxley was paved this summer, the remaining unpaved strip is a about a quarter-mile stretch of gravel road connecting the trail to bike lanes on County Road E-63. Officials said there are plans to pave that stretch of gravel road in the coming year

Two seperate grants, a transportation alternative grant for $190,000,000 and a state recreational grant for $275,067 were noted, according to county documents.
