2018 Greenbelt Trail HMA Reconstruction Project


4/13/2018:  A full closure of the Greenbelt Trail between NW 114th Street and Porter Shelter is expected to be in place beginning next Monday morning, April 16th.  This will include trail connection closures to the Aquatic Center, Lincoln Avenue, Greenbelt Drive and Rio Valley Drive.  Directional signage along the detour route on NW 103rd, Clark and NW 109th Streets (see link to Project Map below) will also be in place next Monday.  Removal of tree stumps and grading operations along the proposed trail alignment will proceed once the closures are in place and site conditions allow.  

2018 Greenbelt Trail HMA Reconstruction Project

The City of Clive recently awarded a contract to Grimes Asphalt and Paving Corporation to reconstruct portions of the Greenbelt Trail between NW 114th Street and Porter Shelter in Greenbelt Park. The trail will be realigned away from Walnut Creek at several key points and repaved with 5-inches of hot mix asphalt (HMA). This project map link below shows the proposed improvements in more detail:

  • Blue Line – existing trail alignment
  • Yellow Line – proposed trail alignment
  • Red Line – detour route during construction

Other work items in the project scope include recycling the existing asphalt surface to use as subbase under the new pavement, realigning/repaving trail connections to the south at Rio Valley Drive and NW 108th Street and completing a connection between last year’s Oxbow excavation and Walnut Creek.

Work on the project is tentatively scheduled to start the week of April 16th. This approximate start date and the schedule moving forward are largely dependent on weather conditions encountered this spring. Final completion of the project is expected by mid-summer. Please continue to visit this webpage during construction for periodic updates. Questions, concerns or the need for additional information may be directed to Jim Hagelie at 223-6231 or
