Mississippi East Bank Trail Reopened April 27

Via a May 1 e-newsletter from Minneapolis Park and Rec Board:

The Mississippi East Bank Trail opened in 2016

Mississippi East Bank Trail reopened last Friday, April 27, after the Hall's Island restoration project closed the trail for nearly six months between Boom Island Park and Sheridan Memorial Park. 

The five-block closure will return for a few days in mid-May to allow workers to repave a short section of trail currently covered in gravel. Visit the Hall's Island project page for more information.

Illustration showing Hall's Island after Phase 2 is complete. Phase 1, which will be finished in summer 2018, only includes the island, back channel and gravel beach on the mainland.

About this project

The Hall's Island restoration will re-establish an island along the Northeast Minneapolis riverfront. Future phases will create pedestrian bridges to allow access to the island and develop some of the open parkland on shore, adjacent to the island.
