This project is one of the largest ones we have ever tackled. It required our team to clear land and install a multi-use trail along the eastern bank of the Des Moines River in the City of Fort Dodge, Iowa. The scope of work included:

  • Stripping
  • Clearing
  • Grubbing
  • Construction of a multi-use trail
  • Construction of safety fence
  • Design and construction of Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) walls
  • Stone placement
  • Box culvert installation
  • Design and construction of a culvert headwall
  • Bituminous paving

The RBV Contracting team gave this project our all. It was our first project west of the Mississippi, so we were excited to break ground.


This project focused on the creation of a multi-purpose trail that locals could use to enjoy the beauty of the Des Moines River. We approached the project with care and a focus on safety at all times.
