Abstract:

The proposed bike trails would be located at Saylorville Reservoir in Polk County, Iowa, 3 miles north of the Des Moines City limits. The Bob Shetler Bike Trail would be 500 feet long. It crosses the old bed of the Des Moines River and connects the recreation area on the west bank to the existing bike trail on the east bank. The Cottonwood Bike Trail would be 4,930 feet long and for much of the way would follow an existing snowmobile trail that runs in a mostly northerly southerly direction. It would tie with the existing bike trail at both the northern and southern ends of the recreation area. The work in both areas consists of preparing the existing surface, placing borrow material, and placing asphaltic cement concrete.
