Minnesota River Bluffs Trail repair projects

Hennepin County is repairing a culvert that carries Purgatory Creek at the Minnesota River Bluffs LRT Regional Trail just south of Valley View Road in Eden Prairie.

Construction activities began in February 2021.

In 2020, Hennepin County repaired the Minnesota River Bluffs Trail between Pioneer Trail (County Road 1/Highway 14) and Flying Cloud Drive (Highway 61) in Chanhassen.

For more information and other construction activities occurring on the Minnesota Bluffs LRT Regional Trail, go to the Three Rivers Park District's website website.

Open all

Culvert repair work resumed late July

During the week of July 26, crews resumed repair work on the culvert carrying Purgatory Creek underneath the Minnesota River Bluffs LRT Regional Trail in Eden Prairie.

Weather permitting, we anticipate the repair work to complete this fall.

Anticipate intermittent impacts

To complete the repair work, there could be intermittent trail impacts and closures between Venture Lane and Valley View Road.

If closures are needed, it will only occur during working hours on weekdays. We will keep the trail open during non-working hours and weekends.

When the trail is closed, people will need to use alternate routes to get around.

Staying safe

For your safety and the safety of our crews, we ask that you obey all posted signs and use caution when the trail's open and crews are working.
