Iowa River Trail Hardin Commission Chairman Chris Wieting believes the ambitious project that will pave a 35-mile trail from Hardin County through Marshalltown is a marathon, not a sprint.

But the group received big news recently with the awarding of a 2018 Federal Rec Trails Grant. The $425,000 grant will pave an additional 2 1/2 miles from the end of the current Iowa River Trail that is paved just past the Iowa River, to 215th Street in Eldora. That street turns into Washington Avenue, one of the main roads that travels through the Eldora community.
