The city of Ames is pushing to have its bike paths connected to the High Trestle Trail and the Heart of Iowa Nature Trail.

Three different trail connections were proposed at the Ames City Council meeting on Sept. 20: the southwest corner of Ames, the southeast corner of Ames and the north corner of Ames.

Current funding has not yet been identified, but paving the trails would cost$400,000 per mile, Mike Cox, director of the Story County Conservation Board, said at the Sept. 20 meeting.

Ames consists of 52.46 miles of trails, but additions are expected. The 52.46 miles include trails and paths located on the side of the road, like the ones on 16th Street.

The city has 48.76 miles of shared-use paths that run alongside roads, and 3.7 miles of gravel paths.
