Grant Wood Trail to close most of February for maintenance

Posted:2/1/2018 Linn

The Grant Wood Trail will be closed from February 5 for approximately three weeks from Highway 13 to Oxley Road due to brush and tree clearing along the trail.  ​This action is taking place in preparation for trail construction later this year.  Linn County Conservation will bid the trail construction project this​ spring with work expected to begin in August.  The Trail will be hard surfaced from the Highway 13 underpass to Waldo's Rock Park in Marion, which is approximately 1/2 mile.  The remainder of the trail, nearly 3 miles, will be graded with a compacted gravel/limestone screening surface with an adjacent grass trail to Oxley Road.  Estimated cost for this project phase is $950,000.  This segment has been identified by the Linn County Conservation Board for future hard surfacing.  Keep checking back for further updates.
