What is Proposed?

Saint Paul Public Works, in coordination with the Department of Parks and Recreation and Ramsey County, is proposing to construct an off-street walking and biking trail along Johnson Parkway. The trail will be constructed along the eastern boulevard of Johnson Parkway between Burns Avenue and Phalen Boulevard in 2020.


This project will improve the safety and comfort of walking and biking in the area. It will also complete a key segment of the Saint Paul Grand Round, a 27-mile scenic parkway that connects parks and neighborhoods across Saint Paul.
