The Cedar View Trail utilizes the roadbed of the former Rock Island Railroad, so in 2002 a bridge was build over Cedar Creek to replace the dismantled RR bridge.
Then in 2007 the Iowa DOT built a bridge to allow the trail to cross over their newly built Hwy 34 bypass.
Cedar View Bridge # 2, which crosses the Hwy 34 bypass, under construction in 2007.
Look at Judy Bales' website pages about the bridges, and about community involvement.
