IOWA CITY, Iowa --
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Friends of Coralville Lake, and the Veterans Trail Commission Board invite the public to a ribbon cutting ceremony at noon on Nov. 11 celebrating the grand reopening of the newly remodeled Veterans Trail. The ceremony will be held near the entrance of the Veterans Trail, across the street from Coralville Lake’s Administration Office located at 2850 Prairie Du Chien Rd NE, Iowa City, Iowa.
Over the past two years the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in cooperation with local partners and donors, made significant improvements to the aging trail. Improvements included the installation of a concrete walkway, landscaping and erosion control walls, culverts, and replacement of bridge decking.
The Veterans Trail is a quarter mile long, concrete-surface trail that is maintained year-round for public access. Since its initial dedication in 1989, a total of 203 veterans have been honored by having their names added to the trail.
In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved into the Coralville Lake Visitor Center. For additional information, contact the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Coralville Lake by calling 319-338-3543, ext. 6300 or emailing Coralville.Lake@usace.army.mil.
