The Iowa Department of Natural Resources announced that the Jewellsworth Bike Trail will be awarded $125,000 in funds for this project that has been seven years in the making. The R.E.A.P. (Resource Enhancement and Protection) Grant selection committee awarded $50,000 for the Ellsworth side of the trail that will provided for hard surfacing from Ellsworth to the Skunk River bridge. On the Jewell side, $75,000 was awarded to provide a hard surfaced trail from Highway 69 near Hagen Welding east to the Drainage Ditch. Funds have also been procured for the bridge to cross the Drainage Ditch in the Jewell city limits. All three projects are slated for start and completion in the 2013 fiscal year.

After these 3 enhancements are completed,the only remaining part will be to hard surface the three bridges between the two cities and prepare the balance of the trail with crushed rock until funding is available to hard surface it. It is hoped that the final stages can be completed with local input.
