Notice to RRVT Trail Users in Perry
 

Construction is beginning today (Aug 11, 2017) on a realignment of the Raccoon River Valley Trail in proximity to the Tyson plant in Perry.

The trail will remain open to traffic, however there will be two gravel run-arounds provided to get around the construction where the new trail will tie into the existing trail.

Please use extra caution around the construction zone.  Thank you for your patience.

Attention RRVT Trail Users

Work will start August 4, 2017 and continue until completed on the paving of 2 trail/road intersections in Dallas County on the RRVT.  The 2 sites where the paved crossing work will occur are Beaumont Ave. (east of Linden) and Canyon Circle (east of Linden).  It is anticipated that the roads at these intersections may be closed down for road traffic during the entire construction process.  There will be limited access for trail users as they will have to dismount from bikes and walk around the construction site.  For more information, contact Dallas County Conservation Board at (515) 465-3577. As of Aug 16, this crossing is still being worked on.

UPDATE:  RRVT Trail Users 

Work will start August 18, 2017 and continue until completed on the paving of 2 trail/road intersections in Dallas County on the RRVT.  The work will occur at the first trail crossing at Linden Road northwest of Redfield and at the Canyon Circle crossing northwest of Redfield.  It is anticipated that the roads at these intersections may be closed down for road traffic during the entire construction process.  There will be limited access for trail users as they will have to dismount from bikes and walk around the construction site.  For more information, contact Dallas County Conservation Board at (515) 465-3577.
