The Mendota-Lebanon Hills Greenway travels 8.5 miles through Mendota Heights, Inver Grove Heights and Eagan. There are areas, primarily in Inver Grove Heights’ Northwest Area, of agricultural land that are expected to develop in the next five to 20 years. The Mendota-Lebanon Hills Greenway will link Lebanon Hills Regional Park to the North Urban Regional Trail, which connects to the Mississippi River and downtown St. Paul.
Mendota to Lebanon Hills Greenway Master Plan
Proposed pedestrian cross at Highway 110
Dakota County is proposing a federal aid project to construct a pedestrian crossing over or under Highway 110 in Mendota Heights. This project is the first stage of the Mendota-Lebanon Hills Regional Greenway, an 8.5-mile greenway between the River to River Greenway in Mendota Heights and Lebanon Hills Regional Park in Eagan. The project will provide for a safe and efficient crossing for non-motorized users who utilize the greenway.
