Damaged areas of Chichaqua Valley Trail near Mingo to be fixed

The Jasper County Conservation Board has hired a construction firm to fix damaged areas along the Chichaqua Valley Trail between Ira and Mingo sometime before Memorial Day.

The trail will be ground up and then rolled for compaction and leveling. This section of the trail will be closed for safety reasons while the crew is working, but the project should only take a few days. Additional cracks also will be filled between Ira and Baxter as the weather gets warmer. The rest of the trail will remain open for use.

Contact the Jasper County Conservation Office at (641) 792-9780 or visit www.jaspercountyconservation.com for any major trail condition updates.
