Restoration of Rice Creek underway, no impact on trail access
In November 2015, the Rice Creek Watershed District began restoring the section of Rice Creek between County Road I and 35W in Arden Hills with the goal of improving water quality. Active construction will continue through March 1, 2016, with additional work planned for the winter of 2016-17.
The project is not expected to impact access to the Rice Creek North Regional Trail, however, users may experience localized disruptions such as additional wood chips or rock and fencing. Please exercise caution in and around these areas.
We appreciate your patience and support as we work to clean up Rice Creek and nearby Long Lake.
