Multi-use trail connections to I-35W Bridge Crossing

Burnsville awarded federal grant to raise trail

In 2020, the City of Burnsville applied for a federal grant to raise a portion of the I-35W Frontage Trail to a minimum elevation of 702 feet.  Looking at historic flooding data, we can estimate that by raising the trail to 702 feet, this section of trail will, on average, flood between three and six days each year.
