Taylors Falls, county put trailhead out for bids

The Swedish Immigrant Regional Trailhead, alongside of the Taylors Falls City offices and fire hall, is going out for bids.  Both the city council and County Board have approved advertising for bids for the segment of the trail from its current end point west of Taylors Falls, to the city hall.

The county completed a Master Plan for the swedish Immigrant Regional Trail and received regional designation in 2014.  The 20 mile trail has eight “segments” and one of the first segments was a two-mile demonstration stretch built in Shafer in 2007.
 
The Swedish Immigrant Regional Trail (SIRT) will eventually connect to Wyoming City,  and have an intersection with the north-south Sunrise Prairie Trail.  

The Gateway Trail is planned to come up from Stillwater/St Paul--all the way through Washington County to Lindstrom-- and connect to the SIRT in Lindstrom.

Chisago County Environmental Services Director Kurt Schneider said the process getting to this point has involved extensive cooperation and collaboration with Minnesota DNR, and construction configuration had to be carefully laid out to preserve wild habitat and protected flora in the Interstate Park area.  General project highlights include a 160 foot bridge, half mile of 10 foot wide trail and the parking lot, shelter and amenities (water fountain, etc) as shown in photos.

The bid award should happen in December, with bridge span prep and construction and trail clearing work starting in February 2020.  Substantial completion is scheduled for August 2020.

WSB and Associates was contracted to do the plan.  The work is proceeding using a state LCCMR grant of $2,254,000 the county was awarded over a year ago.
