The Dallas County Conservation Board will tackle two more phases in the Let’s Connect Trail Project this summer, the board announced Monday.
The trail extension will eventually connect the Raccoon River Valley Trail and High Trestle Trail, making Perry a two-trailhead town and a magnet for tourism and commerce in Dallas County.
The trail from S Avenue to R Avenue is complete, and phase 3 will continue the trail westward one more mile to Quinlan Avenue. The estimated cost of phase 3 is $569,000.
Phase 4 will continue the trail eastward from Perry along 130th Street to M Avenue. Along with the trail pavement itself, the biggest effort of phase 4 will be the construction of a bridge over Beaver Creek. The estimated cost of phase 4 is $669,300.
