During a worksession held prior to the July 20th City Council meeting, the Johnston City Council along with Johnston residents discussed options for trail locations on NW 60th Avenue. The City of Johnston presented three different trail options to evaluate, each providing some advantages and disadvantages. Although many residents had concerns about the trail running close to their home, residents and City officials seemed to come to a consensus on Trail option Number 3.
Option number 3 would leave the existing bike trail on the north side of NW 60th Avenue and would add additional crossing signs along with raised pedestrian area between east and westbound traffic. To make this plan a reality the city will need to acquire 10 feet of property from both the north and south sides of NW 60th Avenue. Construction on NW 60th Avenue is expected to begin next year.
