Trestle to Trestle Bridge to be Replaced in 2022
Sharing this EXCITING Des Moines area plan... we are looking forward to enjoyable adventures in our neighboring communities!
Roughly two years ago, ice jams collapsed the Trestle to Trestle Bridge that spans over Beaver Creek in Johnston. This bridge is the connector between the cities of Johnston and Des Moines and a key element of the very popular urban Trestle to Trestle Trail. Since the collapse, trail partners have been searching for funding for this $2 million dollar project. We are pleased to announce that funding has now been secured!
Funding sources include the cities of Johnston and Des Moines, Metropolitan Planning Organization, Polk County, Polk County Conservation, FEMA, and the State of Iowa. Invitations to bid the project will be solicited in July 2021, with anticipated construction being completed in the spring or early summer of 2022. Designers incorporated the trestle design in the railing of the new bridge to tie it to the past.
GREAT things we can look forward to in 2022 ~Real Advantage Partners
