Clear Creek Trail - Phases 6 & 7

Clear Creek Trail to Extend to Tiffin

The Clear Creek Trail runs south of Highway 6 along Clear Creek for 4.3 miles. The trail has been extended from east of Deer Creek Road to Creekside Ballpark; this extension opened in 2019.

When the remainder of the trail extension is complete, it will
 connect with Tiffin's Clear Creek Trail west of I-380, expected in 2022 at the earliest.


After all work is complete, the 1.9 mile section of trail will feature:
  • 10' wide paved trail
  • Two bridge crossings over Clear Creek
  • Multiple crossings under interstate bridges
  • Connection to Tiffin's Clear Creek Trail


  • Received $1,112,600 in federal funds
  • Bid in January 2018
  • Low bid: $1,758,552.84 (Iowa Bridge and Culvert of Washington, Iowa)


  • Start: March 2018
  • Estimated trail opening: The timeline for this project has been impacted by changes to the I-80/I-380 interchange bridge construction schedule. Future trail closures related to the I-80/I-380 interchange construction will be necessary. Connections under I-80 and I-380 will not be made until at least 2022.

  • Trail work north of I-80 involves crossing under multiple I-80 and I-380 bridges.  
  • Once the trail opens, the trail segment between I-80 and I-380 will be closed on a temporary basis due to the I-80/I-380 interchange project. View the trail alignment relative to the interchange project limits (PDF).  
  • The connections under the I-80 and I-380 bridges will likely not be made until 2022 at the earliest due to the I-80/I-380 interchange construction.
