Linear Park runs along Foster Boulevard in Iowa Falls. In 2017, two sculptures created by Riverbend Middle School students were installed at the park. With plans to install two more, there's been a suggestion to build a trail or sidewalk that would run through the park and around the sculptures.
The Iowa Falls City Council has given preliminary approval to a project that would widen and rebuild the sidewalk along the south side of Washington Avenue, from Fremont Street east to the Rainbow Bridge to make it part of the trails system. The project may necessitate the removal of some trees (seen to the left of the sidewalk in the photo above).
The Iowa Falls City Council can’t be accused of slacking off before the holidays. At a meeting Monday evening, the council gave its permission for the city to move forward with four projects that could begin next spring.
Officials from Fox Engineering presented preliminary plans about the four projects to the council – and started to present a fifth plan for extensive road and intersection repairs before it was suggested that a committee should take up that large project to narrow down the scope before it goes to the full council for approval.
