The Corridor Metropolitan Planning Organization is committing $2.5 million in 2016 to connect Cedar Rapids’ Cedar River Trail to Marion.

The connecting segment will be 2.8-miles long. Overall, the Corridor Metropolitan Planning Organization is using 80 percent of its 2016 funds on trails and bike lanes.

There is also a need to repair some parts of the current Cedar River Trail. These repairs would require an additional $1.3 million.
