New trails, bicycle lanes may be added along Hamilton Boulevard

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

SIOUX CITY (KTIV) – The Sioux City Parks and Recreation Department is proposing a new construction project along Hamilton Boulevard.

The plan is called “The Perry Creek Trail Connection Project.”

The trail connection would consist of an eight-foot-wide trail along Hamilton Boulevard, from Stone Park Boulevard to 36th street.

It would also include five-foot bicycle lanes on each side of Hamilton Boulevard, from 36th street to Outer Drive North.

If approved, they would be Sioux City’s first designated bicycle lanes.

Every major city in the state of Iowa has bicycle lanes.

“It’s a combination of both trail and bike lane so part of the project is proposed to widen some sidewalks where we can,” says Matt Salvatore, Parks and Recreation Director. “There are limited areas to do that and then the rest of it is to take a look at the opportunity of adding a bike lane along Hamilton.”

Input from the community is encouraged at Thursday’s public meeting at 7 p.m. at Sioux City City Hall.

That input will give the Parks and Rec department some direction regarding next steps.
