Engineering Projects – Floodwood River Trail
Floodwood River Trail
City of Floodwood, MN
Bringing the Community Closer Together
The City of Floodwood wanted to develop a trail that would connect its community over the Floodwood River with limited funds. As the City Engineer, we began pursuing fiscal support from several agencies. Eventually, the City was successful in procuring grant assistance from TEA-21, and DNR Trail Funds to help offset costs for the design and construction of a 220-foot bridge and accompanying ¾ mile trail.
Transitioning Dreams into Reality
Following the award of grant funding, we provided design, construction management, right-of-way assistance, and federal submittals for this trail. In addition, DNR and COE permit approvals were secured for construction of the bridge.
Final design and construction of this trail was conducted on a budget at just under $500K. Nearly 90% of the project cost was paid by grant support from TEA-21, DNR-Trails, and a St. Louis County grant.
