The positive momentum and progress of the Chisago County Swedish Immigrant Regional Trail is moving forward again this summer with construction of the Segment F "Connection Project". Dresel Contracting Inc. of Chisago City has been awarded the project and work is underway to carry out selective vegetation and tree clearing to construct this critical 1.75 mile connection of the trail from the City of Shafer to Tern Avenue and beyond to Taylors Falls and Interstate State Park. The contractor should have all sub cut work and the trail backfilled by the end of the week. They will then install culverts, aggregate base, fine grade and seed which will be followed by site clean-up. Paving should be completed by the end of July. An uninterrupted 6.5 mile paved trail will then be open for business upon completion.
Stay tuned for more updates!
With the support of numerous public officials, the community, and especially adjacent and surrounding land owners the Swedish Immigrant Regional Trail reality is moving forward. Please thank those involved and contact the County Parks Department for more information and updates.
