Paving and landscaping on the Riverside Trail Extension between 5th St. and Riverside Park was completed this week.

Sean Simonson, City of Northfield’s Engineering Tech Coordinator, wrote in last week’s Friday Memo that the “trail dedication ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, July 10th.”

The Riverside Trail Extension connects downtown with the Peggy Prowe Pedestrian Bridge over the Cannon River at Hwy 3 and then on to the Mill Towns Trail.

The $245,000 to construct the trail came from the City’s Master Development District Fund.

Update 7/12: I’ve added these two photos taken on 6/27 that show the signs urging people to walk their bikes around the corner.
