Project to Illuminate Raccoon River Valley Trail Bridge in Adel
ADEL, Iowa — Nighttime visitors of the Raccoon River Valley Trail in Adel are going to have a fun sight coming this spring.
According to the Des Moines Register, the Adel Partners Chamber of Commerce Committee wants to install 66 LED color-changing spotlights on the old railroad bridge. The bridge would be visible to drivers on highway 169.
They say it is part of a larger improvement project spanning from Nile Kinnick Drive to the Raccoon River Valley Trail. A kickoff event was held Friday about the improvements.
The committee hopes to begin installation in April of 2020.
