Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to establish the project requirements and to evaluate the project on the basis of engineering, economic, and environmental viability. The report includes a project description, engineering consideration, economic analysis, and environmental assessment. The project is located in the tailwater area of Lake Red Rock in Marion County, Iowa. The proposed trail involves construction of 1325 feet of an 8 foot wide surfaced bike trail, two dikes extending from the banks of the Des Moines River, and a 3 span 321 foot steel truss trail bridge over the Des Moines River. This project will connect the two existing trails that serve the popular Lake Red Rock tailwater recreation areas. Additional segments of the trail will be designed along the north shore of Lake Red Rock.
