update Aug 3 2018

Work on the trail sections funded by the MN legislature in May 2018 has started  and is progressing nicely.

1) WSB Engineering (under contract from the City of Mahtomedi) is working on soil borings, and detailed wet land delineation and topography along the Birchwood Road segment. The design team is working to minimize impact on wetlands and animal habitat at the same time as ensuring a safe trail.

2) South Shore Blvd section:  Ramsey county has elected to assess its right of way using a statutory procedure that it expects to be quicker and less costly than engaging a very expensive right of way analyst company

3) MN DOT is surveying along MN hwy 96 to ensure accurate information

More updates expected at Monday Aug 13th Lake Links meeting at  7 pm at Mahtomedi District Education Center 1520 Mathomedi Ave . Hope to see you there!

A Capitol Success

In late May the Minnesota Legislature approved $4.022 million in funding as follows:

Ramsey County – $2.6 million for trail improvements on South Shore Boulevard in White Bear Lake and White Bear Township

Mahtomedi – $1.4 million for Birchwood Road, Wildwood Beach Road, and Briarwood Road and trail elements

White Bear Township – $11,000 for preliminary engineering (omitted from prior bill along MN 96)

City of White Bear Lake – $11,000 for preliminary engineering (omitted from prior bill along MN 96) 

Together, we are getting  this done!


Fun in the Sun! 2nd Annual Bike Ride Around White Bear Lake

Thanks to all who joined us Sunday, June 17, for our second annual bike around White Bear Lake!

Along with bicycling and discovering little-known facts about our area's history, participants had a chance to learn about legislative funding, the timeline for trail completion, and what the various trail segments will look like.

Icy vanilla custard was donated by the Centerville Road Culver's (THANK YOU, CULVER'S! Look at those happy faces in the picture above ).
