Upcoming Cedar Valley Nature Trail Projects

Posted:8/15/2019 Black Hawk

Reconstruction of a quarter mile section of the Cedar Valley Nature Trail just north of McFarlane Park is currently scheduled to occur between April 1, 2020 and June 30, 2020. This section of trail will be closed for about 1 month (weather dependent) from the date the contractor starts working.  If the contractor cannot place the seeding prior to May 31, there may be some seeding occurring in the fall of 2020. The Cedar Valley Nature Trail will be closed from Spruce Street in La Porte City to King Road near the entrance of McFarlane Park during construction.  

The replacement of Wolf Creek Bridge is currently scheduled for spring of 2020 with demolition of the existing bridge potentially occurring in the winter months of 2019. The section of trail that is currently closed, Brett Klima Wildlife area to Wolf Creek Bridge, will remain closed through bridge construction completion.  

During construction of these two public improvements, trail users will still be able to enjoy the Cedar Valley Nature Trail from the McFarlane Park trailhead south towards Linn County or from Brett Klima Wildlife Area north to Evansdale and the Cedar Falls/Waterloo metropolitan areas.  

Thank You all for your patience and cooperation as we work to repair and improve the Cedar Valley Nature Trail.
