The Sioux City Council will be asked Monday to approve a resolution to amend the city's bike facility study to include a trail on the Gordon Drive Viaduct.
City staff are also recommending a trail connection on Cunningham Drive. The council approved the bike facility study on Aug. 8.
According to city documents, the Iowa DOT wants to see an updated bike/pedestrian plan from the city to determine the appropriate accommodation.
City staff have been working with the Iowa DOT on the planned reconstruction of the Gordon Drive Viaduct. The 3,970-foot-long viaduct, built in 1937 and improved in 1963 and 1966, is deteriorating.
The documents state that city staff prefers the single multi-use trail facility over sidewalks on each side of the viaduct, which is "heavily used by pedestrians and cyclists."
