MASON CITY – Any active person has to be over-joyed at the sight of the new trails under construction in Mason City.

Perhaps the most-noticeable project in town right now are the much-needed bicycle and pedestrian trails under construction all over the city. This is a real amenity that can be used to lure younger, active people to town – or to keep people from leaving. Many say these new trails will do a lot to make a better quality of life in Mason City.

You can see the trail construction in several key locations: South Monroe Avenue, where Larry Elwood construction is installing concrete trail from about 8th Street south to 15th Street. Elsewhere, 9th Street SW near Menards and north along Taft Avenue has new trails going in.

Today, Heartland Asphalt was busy with skid loaders and tractors, plowing up the boulevard along North Illinois Avenue, prepping to install an asphalt trail along that route. It will link up with the NIACC trail, which is a great route all the way to the NIACC campus.

If all goes well, most every trail construction project started this summer will be completed in the next several weeks.
