Indian Creek Trail
A major project on the Linn-Mar Main Campus is wrapping up as the construction season winds down.
Contractors hired by the city of Marion are putting the finishing touches on the new Indian Creek Trail.
The trail starts at its connection with the Boyson trail, just north of 8th avenue. It follows Indian Creek and goes under the 29th avenue bridge. The north end connects to the side paths along Tower Terrace Road.
Part of the project involved the replacement of the bridge that connects the high school campus with Armstrong Field. Because of its design, the old bridge had to be removed to reduce the risk of flooding during heavy rains.
Funding for the project was made possible through a Federal Transportation grant and a 20% local match provided by the City of Marion.
