Cedar Lake Trail closing starting May 13 till 2021

FROM A RECENT NEWS RELEASE: Leaders especially should take note of this. And some or all of the Kenilworth Trail will also be closed. This has come up fast and will seriously impact many trail users.

The Cedar Lake LRT Regional Trail will be closed beginning May 13 from Excelsior Boulevard in Hopkins east to France Avenue in St. Louis Park. The closure is due to Southwest Light Rail Transit construction and is expected to last through fall 2021.

A detour will be in place that utilizes the North Cedar Lake Regional Trail and the local bicycle network to connect users to the Midtown Greenway. There will be a detour around impacted areas in Minneapolis as well. See the Three Rivers Parks website.
The trail will be fully reconstructed upon completion of the project and will include grade-separated crossings at Beltline Boulevard, Wooddale Avenue and Blake Road.
