Three Rivers Park District wanted to extend its trail usage by developing 2.8 miles of the Bassett Creek Regional Trail from New Hope to Crystal, Minnesota. TKDA was contracted to develop this section of trail connecting to Theodore Wirth Regional Park.
The project consisted of constructing an off road multi-use trail which included narrowing of some streets to accommodate the trail. This required the relocation of a curb line and adjustment of the existing storm sewer. Permitting was completed with the Bassett Creek Watershed Management Commission for stormwater impacts and floodplain encroachment. Wetlands conservation act permitting and bank site mitigation was also completed.
