Minnehaha Creek Master Plan: New Boardwalk for Minneapolis

BoardwalkIf you own a condo or home along the Minnehaha Creek, you’ve seen the signs and alerts along the trails from Lyndale Avenue eastward to Garfield Avenue.

It’s all about helping to guide people around the trail construction work area.

As part of its Master Plan, Minneapolis is renovating the Minnehaha Parkway Trail.

The Buzz Around the Lyndale Avenue Bridge

Phase One of this work finished in 2016. That work widened pedestrian asphalt trail, starting from west of Bryant Avenue and winding up at the Lyndale Avenue Bridge. Phase One also provided much-needed upgrades to the Lyndale Avenue trail intersection.

Phase Two is the trail work’s current phase. Workers are removing the existing wooden boardwalk. In its place, people who love to ride bikes and walk will enjoy a new boardwalk 12 feet wide.

In summer 2019, when workers complete this project, the trail will accommodate cyclists and pedestrians through the Lyndale Avenue Bridge underpass.

Minnehaha Creek Master Plan

The two-phase Minnehaha Parkway Trail Improvement project received the Park and Recreation board approval in 2015.

The trail renovation includes a gentler slope, in compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act standards. The banks of the Minnehaha Creek will also undergo restoration work conducted in collaboration with the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District.
