Trestle to Trestle Bridge Replacement Begins

On-site mobilization has begun and construction work is set to begin in early February. Contractors will access the site from NW Johnston Drive north of the project area. Project completion is expected by the fall of 2022.

While the current trail detour route and adjacent trails west and north of the project area will remain open throughout construction, the public is reminded to keep away from the project site. A great way to follow the progress is to watch the construction time-lapse camera on the following link: https://app.oxblue.com/open/polkco/trestletotrestletrailbridge.

Questions can be directed to Polk County Conservation Deputy Director, Kami Rankin, at kami.rankin@polkcountyiowa.gov or 515-323-5363.
