CR19 Safe Trail Crossing

Trail_Bridge_Graphic_-_Steel_Truss_Bridge-page-0.jpgWith federal funding secured, initial planning is underway for our Lake Minnetonka LRT Trail safe crossing over County Road 19 in Shorewood and Tonka Bay! Those of us who bike and hike on that trail know the difficulty of crossing such a busy roadway, and appreciate the need for a grade-separated bridge. Here's a pic of one possible design. We're now working with the two cities to plan trail alignments, and the road and bridge will both stay open when construction begins next Spring. Please be sure to contact us if you have any questions as this important project proceeds.
