Missouri Pacific Rail Trail

Project Description

The Missouri Pacific Recreational Trail is a 3/4 mile urban trail through the heart of Iola, Kansas. The trail utilizes abandoned Missouri Pacific rail right-of-way and connects to the Prairie Spirit Rail Trail on the west side of Iola. The shared use path provides a safe route for bicyclist and pedestrians to connect to recreation and neighborhoods destinations within town. 

Schwab Eaton was selected to provide survey, design and construction observation services for the development of the trail. The City of Iola partnered with the Kansas Department of Transportation through the Transportation Alternatives Program. With the help of Schwab Eaton, Iola has built a strong network of trails and pedestrian facilities that are true asset to the community.
