City of Ames Temporarily Closes Trail Over Safety Concerns
AMES, Iowa -- The city of Ames is taking a new approach to public safety due to the recent murder of former ISU golfer Celia Barquin Arozamena. The city of Ames wants to find more active ways of addressing safety issues before they become safety concerns. That is why they are closing the bike trail from South 4th street to the Veterinary Medicine complex to clear the brush for better visibility, so trail users can be more aware of their surroundings.
