RIVERDALE, Iowa (AP) - The city of Riverdale says it plans to track the number of walkers, joggers and cyclists on its stretch of the Mississippi River Trail this June.

Mayor Sonya Paddock tells the Quad-City Times (https://bit.ly/1VHuUu6 ) that it appears a lot of people are already using the path, despite chilly weather.

Last summer, crews poured and paved the 1.4-mile-long, 10-foot separated trail along the north side of U.S. 67 from South Bellingham Street to Riverdale’s city limits at Fenno Road.

From start to finish, the Mississippi River Trail stretches more than 3,000 miles of on-road bike lanes and pedestrian and bicycle paths from the river’s headwaters in Itasca, Minnesota, to the Gulf of Mexico.
