Culvert project is complete

In November 2021, crews finished adding a new culvert and repairing an existing culvert that carries Purgatory Creek underneath the Minnesota River Bluffs LRT Regional Trail just south of Valley View Road in Eden Prairie.

The culverts will now be able to handle a higher stream flow during heavy rain events to help prevent flooding. And people who live in the area and use the Minnesota Bluffs LRT Trail will continue to enjoy a safe traveling experience.
