Hopkins Artery Project begins!

041017_TRPD_update.jpgAs a regular user of this trail, I am particularly excited that the City of Hopkins will begin work on the Hopkins Artery project in May! The Artery will be a pedestrian and bike friendly corridor along 8th Avenue in downtown Hopkins that will connect Mainstreet and the Lake Minnetonka LRT Regional Trail to the Minnesota River Bluffs LRT Regional Trail. The Artery will offer a cycle track for bicyclists and art-infused sidewalks for pedestrians. Here's a cool rendering of the Artery looking north from the Minnesota River Bluffs LRT Regional Trail

In other regional trail news, Kiosk and directional blade structures are in place along the Bassett Creek Regional Trail in New Hope and Crystal. The final trail segment along 36th Avenue N. between Winnetka Avenue N. and Nevada Avenue N. will be completed this spring. Open this link for more information on both of these trail developments.
