DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The city of Des Moines is getting ready to temporarily close its Great Western bike trail for construction.
The city says the 16.5-mile trail will be closed Monday through Aug. 23. The closure is due to the replacement of the Army Post Road Bridge over the rail that started earlier this year.
The closure is just east of the Willow Creek Golf Course. There will be no detour on the trail.
The paved trail is jointly managed by the Warren and Polk county conservation boards.
