The Mendota-Lebanon Hills Greenway travels 8.5 miles through Mendota Heights, Inver Grove Heights and Eagan. The Mendota-Lebanon Hills Greenway will link Lebanon Hills Regional Park to the River to River Greenway, which connects to the Mississippi River and downtown St. Paul.
The project will develop a feasibility study and preliminary design report for about 4.1 miles of the Mendota-Lebanon Hills Greenway. It spans segment two as identified in the 2013 Mendota-Lebanon Hills Greenway Master Plan from Highway 55 to Cliff Road.
The project will identify a preferred trail alignment where gaps exist, required trail improvements on existing trails and a grade-separated crossing of Highway 55. Other amenities will include:
- Safety and accessibility improvements to the trail crossings at local streets
- Connections to local trails, sidewalks and park amenities
- Wayfinding and interpretive signage
- Other features consistent with Dakota County Greenway Standards
Preliminary design, environmental assessment, survey and engineering work and the public engagement process will begin spring 2022 and extend through summer 2023. More updates will be posted here as they become available.
