Improvement 19-02 - Cuyuna Lakes State Trail Brainerd Segment

Connection and designation of the Cuyuna Lakes State Trail in Brainerd along Trunk Highway 210 from 5th Avenue NE to N 8th Street and along Norwood Street from S 8th Street to the Buffalo Hills Trail.


The City of Brainerd has been appropriated $1,100,000 for the connection of the Cuyuna Lakes State Trail in Brainerd through the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  This money was appropriated in 2014 for construction of the trail in Deerwood.  The left over funds were re-appropriated to the City for the trail connection in Brainerd.  It is anticipated after this connection is constructed, the City of Brainerd will enter into a Joint Powers Agreement with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources for designation of this segment and other existing trails in Brainerd as the Cuyuna Lakes State Trail.  The City has contracted with Short Elliot Hendrickson, Inc. for design and construction engineering services on this proposed trail segment.
