Improvement Projects

  1. Elm Creek Stream Restoration Phase V
  2. D.C. Chandler Park Improvements
  3. Mississippi Drive Area Street and Utility Improvements
  4. 2023 Street and Utility Improvements

Construction Duration: December 2023 - February 2024

The City has been working to restore the Elm Creek stream bank and provide native habitat improvements. The final phase of the project includes 2,500 lineal feet of stream and extends the restoration of Elm Creek from the Elm Creek Crossing bridge upstream (west) to Hayden Lake. Stream bank improvement work began in December 2023 and includes restoration of the riparian areas of the creek through February 2024. Native planting buffers will be constructed to filter sediment and nutrients from directly running into the creek. Elm Creek is an impaired waterway, and projects like this one incorporate improvements to habitat, water quality, and flood control. This project opens opportunities to improve public recreation like kayaking and fishing. Funding for this project was provided by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR).

Trail Closure: December 2023 - February 2024

Work has begun on the final phase of the Elm Creek stream restoration and residents can expect a minor trail closure from the Elm Creek Bridge to West Hayden Lake Road until mid-February.
