Anoka County in Running for Trail Grants

The Met Council is looking at funding several trail projects in Anoka County – one to build a ‘missing link’ in the Rum River Trail corridor, and a second to build two canal-crossing bridges, from Anoka’s Mississippi Community Park nearly 2 miles up the river to the undeveloped Mississippi West Regional Park in Ramsey.

Meanwhile, Senators Tom Coburn and John McCain released a report criticizing 100 projects being funded by the Obama administration’s stimulus law. Included on the Senators’ list was funding for the final extension of the Cedar Lake Trail to the new Twins stadium at Target Field. This funding has been defended by Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood and by the League of American Bicyclists.
