Closure: 142 - 149th: Details:

trail is open as of this afternoon.

dbpaul8 yes that's probably the best off-street option for getting over/under 35-80.

An option if your destination is more southernly is to use Westown Parkway to cross 35-80. Not entirerely off-street, but the street segments are low-traffic.

Head south at Clive Aquatic Center bridge, then slightly east behind the retirement apartments to get to 109th. Cross University at 109th, or the Barnes & Noble signal a block east. Parking lots and side streets will then get you to Westown. The trail on Westown is now complete with the construction of the new Merchants Bonding building.

Then head north on 68th st, which turns into Country Club Blvd. You can either use the neighborhood streets to pick up the Clive Greenbelt again, or continue north to Hickman/RRVT.

For a non-street detour, I would suggest taking the bike trail North along 100th (East side until Hickman and then on the West side) to Douglas. Then along the bike trail along the North side of Douglas to either 156th Street and back to Hickman or you can take the underpass under Douglas about one block west of Des Moines Christian and then through Timberline Park and then connect up to Hickman near the Deerfield retirement community. I know that it will be a short-term inconvenience, but I really appreciate them upgrading their trails to make for easier riding.

The segment from the Campbell park bridge (Walnut Creek) to Country Club Blvd. will be closed for reconstruction starting July 20th. The closure is anticipated to run through mid October.

This cuts a the main route between the metro trails and the Raccoon River Valley Trail.

Information and a closure map can be found at the City of Clive site:
