Lake Shore & Nisswa Trail

Project Overview

The Cities of Lake Shore and Nisswa are considering the construction of a 10-foot-wide bituminous trail. The trail corridor will begin at the intersection of CSAH 77 and CSAH 78 in Lake Shore. It will then head east along the north right-of-way of CSAH 77  to Lower Roy Lake Road (LRLR). The trail will continue north on LRLR to the intersection of Hazelwood Drive. It will continue north on Hazelwood Drive and connect to the Nisswa Lake Public Water Access, travel through a tunnel under TH 371, and connect with the Paul Bunyan Trail in Nisswa. Please see the map below for an overview.

Construction Timeline Coming Soon

A construction timeline will be posted mid to late April. Construction is anticipated to begin mid to late May following road restrictions.

Project Updates

The project was let on February 23, 2023, with Anderson Brothers Construction having the lowest bid at $2,784,590.05. Next we will be scheduling a preconstruction conference to review the project with the contractor and their proposed schedule for construction. After the preconstruction conference we will update this site with key tasks including where the contractor proposes to begin construction. The contractor’s first milestone will be to have all trees along the site that are to be cut down completed by March 31, 2023.
