Partnerships improve our trails

excelsior_trail.jpgI have long been committed to cooperative service partnerships, and here's a great example. Working with the city of Excelsior, Hennepin County Regional Railroad Authority and a local developer, Three Rivers has made significant safety improvements to the Lake Minnetonka LRT Regional Trail west of Water Street - near the new Excelsior Library.

The previous trail followed a confusing route through a parking lot, and a new redevelopment presented an opportunity to realign and separate the trail from vehicle traffic with a raised curb. Coordinating trail construction with the redevelopment was a very cost effective way to introduce long needed safety improvements!
