South Omaha Trail – July update

Construction projects take a long time because much of the time the contractors are busy with multiple projects with different priorities and money incentives, having to wait on different contractors to finish their preparatory work before another can start, weather delays, etc.

The work I captured in pics on the 30-July are of natural gas installation along D St between 42nd and 36th Sts, and the start of a retaining wall east of 36th along I-80. It appears the actual onsite time needed to complete this project will be concentrated in the last few month of Autumn.

I didn’t measure but the trail is to be 8′ wide along D St which is probably the width between the sod and cement in these pictures. This is the same as the Keystone and Big Papio Trails. Except for along D St and over the viaduct on 36th St, the trail will be 10′ wide.

2015 Fall Wabash-Trace Two Day Ride and Camp

Ride your bike on Saturday from Omaha/Council Bluffs to Shenandoah and spend the night camping outside (free), in a lodge (free with suggested donation to SWINT), or a hotel room (you’re on your own). Wake up Sunday and ride back to Council Bluffs. Folks should use this opportunity to buy a trail pass or two to help support the SouthWest Iowa Nature Trail.

Saturday, September 26, leave Council Bluffs trailhead at 08:00.
Sunday, September 27 return.

THIS IS A SELF-SUPPORTED RIDE.
Each person is responsible for themself, and arranging sag (someone to motor your supplies down and back or pick you up to get back home) if needed. Consider working with others to arrange one sag vehicle per multiple people.

Lots of options:

  • Day trip to Mineola (9.6 miles), Malvern (21.9), or Imogene (35.5) and return. Food and drink establishment(s) at each.
  • Campground at Malvern.
  • Shower and campground at Imogene.
  • Shenandoah food and drink establishments, hotel (44.4).
  • Lodge, camping, shower, cooking appliances at Ike’s five miles south of Shenandoah (49.4).
  • Travel to end of Wabash-Trace at the Missouri line (62.3).

Click here for pics of Ike’s (common room floor for inside sleeping) and to join so we have a rough estimate of who is going.

Any questions, post them on the event page here.
