Current Phase: Construction
Construction begins soon on the Calhoun/Bde Maka Ska-Harriet Trail and Access Improvements project. After Memorial Day, trail users may notice workers mobilizing equipment around both Lake Harriet and Lake Calhoun/Bde Maka Ska.
The Master Plan is a written and graphic document that sets a 25-year vision for Lake Calhoun/Bde Maka Ska, Lake Harriet and the surrounding parkland.
The Calhoun/Bde Maka Ska-Harriet Trail and Access Improvements project is in the final stages of design, with construction anticipated for Summer/Fall 2017. The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) plans to maintain complete trail loops around both lakes throughout construction; however, trail users should anticipate detours and trail congestion while work takes place.
Fall 2016-Winter 2017
Spring 2017-Fall 2017
