"The Minnesota River Greenway in Burnsville has reopened following a temporary closure due to flooding. The paved regional trail reopened July 25 from the Minnesota Riverfront Park Trailhead at the Interstate 35W bridge to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources boat landing under the Cedar Avenue Bridge." Dakota County Parks
HOWEVER, you still cannot access Cedar Avenue (north side of river). Choices are Cliff Road (Burnsville) and Silver Bell Rd to Nichols (Eagan).
Good news is coming to that area. A new trail is under construction from the Mendota Overlook along Highway 13 to Lone Oak Rd. EVENTUALLY, this trail will connect to the river. No idea why the current plan is to end it at Lone Oak.
