Work on a proposed multimillion-dollar trail connecting Sioux City and Le Mars is expected to begin next year.

The Plywood trail, linking Plymouth and Woodbury counties, will cost an estimated $18 million and will span 16 miles, the Sioux City Journal reported. It's projected for completion in 2025, according to Lesley Bartholomew with the PlyWood Trail Committee.

Le Mars-based Wells Enterprise, makers of Blue Bunny ice cream company, has pledged $4 million toward the project, and Bartholomew thought more people would be motivated to donate when they saw parts of the trail completed.

"It is kind of a wait-and-see attitude for some individuals," said Bartholomew, who is also the spokeswoman for Wells Enterprise. "We are talking to some potential large donors whose interest is piqued."
