Projects in Planning

Lake Marion Trail Project

The Lake Marion Greenway is a 20-mile planned trail through Burnsville, Savage, Credit River Township, Lakeville and Farmington, with the intention of linking the Minnesota River to the Murphy Hanrehan Park Reserve. A master plan for this project was first adopted in 2013.  See the Lake Marion Trail Project page for more information.

On-Street Bike Lanes

On-street bike lanes are a cost-effective way to complete gaps in the City’s bike network. While trails might be preferred, the cost of constructing them is much higher than utilizing existing streets and striping a lane for bikes.  

In 2018, the City of Burnsville studied areas that could accommodate on-street bike lanes. The City Council has since approved three pilot project areas.  See the On-Street Bike Lanes page for more information.

2021 City Street Improvements

There are many City street improvement projects planned for 2021.  See the 2021 City Street Improvements page for more information.

Cliff Road Trail Project

In 2018, the City received Federal grant funding to complete a trail gap on the north side of Cliff Road between Highway 13 and the Eagan border. The City of Burnsville is partnering with Dakota County to complete this gap, currently proposed for construction to begin in the spring of 2021. See the Cliff Road Trail page for more information

Nicollet Avenue Multi Use Trail (Highway 13 to Cliff Road)

The City of Burnsville hopes to make an addition to our multi-use trail system. We are proposing to provide a ten foot wide asphalt off-street trail on the east side of Nicollet Avenue from Trunk Highway 13 to Cliff Road.  See the Nicollet Avenue Multi-Use Trail Addition page for more information.

County Road 11/Burnsville Parkway Roundabout

The City of Burnsville is working with Dakota County on an intersection improvement at County Road 11 and Burnsville Parkway.  The County is proposing to replace the existing signal system with a roundabout.  See the County Road 11/Burnsville Parkway Roundabout page for more information.
