Come Help Cut the Ribbon on the New Dinkytown Greenway!

After years of planning, the Dinkytown Greenway is now open to bicyclists. The bike trail runs through the University of Minnesota’s East Bank campus and, by connecting to the U of M Transitway, carries bike traffic from the northeast metro (Saint Paul, Falcon Heights, Lauderdale, Roseville) across the Mississippi River. Next year’s Bluff Street Trail project will extend the Dinkytown Greenway under Interstate 35W and into downtown Minneapolis.

This Sunday, Aug. 4, an opening celebration and bike ride will take place (please see attached map). All are welcome to attend the celebration and ride.


After the celebration, the bike ride will continue along the new greenway, through campus and across the Mississippi River to the site of next year’s Bluff Street Trail project, which will complete the trail connection to downtown Minneapolis.
