New signs are being made for recreational trails in the Des Moines area, and the first three designs have been released.
Why it matters: They include E-911 GPS coordinates for quick emergency response and city phone numbers to report trail hazards.
- Plus: They create a graphic identity for each trail.
Details: Nine of the metro's most notable trails are getting the new signs in coming months.
- The first three: Bill Riley, Carl Voss and Neal Smith trails.
- The rest will be released this fall. Those include: Meredith, Gay Lea Wilson, MLK Jr. Parkway, Trestle to Trestle, John Pat Dorrian and Walnut Creek trails.
Of note: Friends of DSM Parks pledged $45K for the design work and are selling merchandise with the new graphics.
- Proceeds will help fund future trail projects.
