From Trail Manager Trent McCown
There was a bridge fire in Iola on 08-31-11 that damaged the bridge just south of Oregon Rd within the city limits of Iola. A short section of trail is closed and we are routing visitors around the closed section. Visitors may go east on Oregon ( paved road north edge of Iola) to 1600 Rd ( AKA Kentucky Street) then south to Miller street, then back west to the trail as the recommended route. A shorter route would be to go West to Main ( old 169) on Oregon then south to Miller and east to the trail, but it is a higher traffic road.
This section will be closed for at least a month or possibly longer as we will have to have the bridge inspected then complete repairs.
