Twin Lakes Trail Project
The City of Roseville is planning to construct a 10-foot bituminous (asphalt) trail next year spanning Ramsey County Ditch 4 (RCD 4) from County Road C to Terrace Avenue. Other design features of the trail include lighting, landscaping, benches and landscaping. The city, working with Rice Creek Watershed District (RCWD), will be converting the existing ditch to a pipe system. This storm water project, which allows for the construction of a new trail, will provide improved storm water management and decrease maintenance of the ditch, which is becoming increasingly difficult with development. More information on the RCD 4 project can be found here.
The construction of the trail will be paid for by the City of Roseville with funds acquired from recent developments. As a result, there will be no cost or assessment to property owners. Construction of the proposed pathway will begin during the summer of 2021 and should be open for public use by October 2021.
RCD 4 Project Additional information on the storm sewer project can be found on the RCD 4 Project webpage.
Phase 2 – Terrace Drive to Oasis Park Connection
The city is also exploring options to extend the trail from Terrace Avenue to Oasis Park as a second phase of the project. The new trail would create a non-motorized connection between new residential developments and businesses in the area along with improved access to Oasis Park. A feasibility report should be completed by the end of April 2021. Once this is completed, additional neighborhood meetings will be held to discuss this potential connection.
