Bassett Creek Regional Trail Golden Valley Segment

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Bassett Creek Regional Trail is a paved multi-use trail traveling from French Regional Park in Plymouth east through New Hope and Crystal and into Golden Valley. The goal for the trail, as outlined in the 2012 master plan, is to connect it to the Grand Rounds Trail at Theodore Wirth Park; however, a one-mile unbuilt gap in the trail exists between Regent Avenue and Bonnie Lane.

Three Rivers Park District, the City of Golden Valley and Hennepin County are partnering on a project that aims to complete the last segment of trail along Golden Valley Road and Duluth Street (CSAH 66).

As part of this project, an additional local trail connection will be constructed along CSAH 66 from Regent Avenue west to Douglas Drive. This connection will add nearly another mile of trail and further expand the number of trail users who are able to easily connect to the regional trail network from their homes or workplaces.

Both the county and city have completed feasibility studies over the last five years for this corridor, validating the need for a shared-use trail along CSAH 66 and providing guidance for trail design. Preliminary design work is being conducted through April; at that point Three Rivers will apply for a federal transportation grant for the project. If successful, the federal grant would fund 80 percent of the trail’s $3.15 million cost and construction could start in 2023.

A public open house was held on December 19 to raise awareness about the upcoming project, present potential options for the trail as we begin design, and receive feedback from the community.

A second, informational open house will be held in February to share the design with the public, gather additional feedback and answer any questions prior to submitting the application for the federal grant. Here are details:

I support this project. Please stop putting in unprotected bike lanes and sidewalks. We need protection from distracted drivers. A stripe of paint along the road won't stop you from getting killed or paralyzed.

I’m very much in favor of this project. Today biking along Golden Valley Road between Regent Ave and Theodore Wirth Parkway is very dangerous.
