Two bridges over Mosquito Creek were completed this fall, helping link the paved trail to Weston, then Underwood and Neola over the next few years.

This most recent progress follows completion of the first section of trail from Smith Wildlife Area to County Road L34 which opened in late Summer 2018. The city of Council Bluffs extended a city trail to the Smith Wildlife Area.

“The new bridges are a crucial part of our countywide trail system. Despite some unanticipated delays, we’re excited to see it moving forward,” Pottawattamie County Trails Association Board President Courtney Harter said.

“This trail will connect Council Bluffs with multiple small towns in Pottawattamie County and ultimately with other communities across southwest Iowa.”

Harter said the first four miles of the trail is now completed to a point just south of Weston, and plans are to continue construction of the trail to Underwood next year, weather permitting. Construction this year was slowed by weather.
