The city of Riverdale IA has put up a fence across the Duck Creek Bike trail and the Great Mississippi River trail. They don’t want path users going though there neighborhood and are trying to make users cross a very busy and dangerous part of US 67 next to a major manufacturing factory, when there is already a underpath in place under US 67 on the Duck creek trail. The Mayor has been quite vocal and clear it’s his way or the hi-way (literally) This neighborhood has been anti bicycle and bike path for years. Including going as far as putting up signs saying the will shoot cyclists in the pass. Riverdale is trying to push the problem to Bettendorf IA for a problem they created. There needs a safe solution for both sides preferably not crossing US 67, before they can just push the problem to someone else and put up a Fence.
