Floyd River Valley Trail Study
SIMPCO staff has continued to draft and develop the Floyd River Valley Trail Study over the past few months and has prepared a full DRAFT document of the Floyd River Valley Trail Study. The Floyd River Valley Trail Study evaluates options to connect the communities of Sioux City, Hinton, Merrill, and Le Mars by a bicycle and pedestrian trail by recommending safe and secure transportation links for users. The study examines three possible scenarios ranging from a current on-road route, to a future mainline route and possible future scenic route.
