Project Summary

The Preserve Boulevard Improvement Project includes the following primary components:

  • Addition of a second southbound lane on Preserve Boulevard and associated intersection improvements at Anderson Lakes Parkway
  • Addition of left turn lanes at all intersections along Preserve Boulevard and center medians along the full length of the roadway
  • Addition of a storm water pump station to pump water from Eden Lake to Neil Lake; this is an improvement to the Eden Lake storm water outlet to help control water levels and minimize the impact of large rain events on adjacent properties
  • New landscaping, including replacement of approximately 80 trees removed for the project with 97 new deciduous and coniferous trees, and more than 100 shrubs and perennials.

Public Art Component

The Preserve Boulevard Improvement project budget includes the integration of public art. In 2018, the City initiated a selection process to seek qualified artists who submitted proposals for works of art to be installed in multiple locations along Preserve Boulevard. CJ Rench Design Studio was selected to design, fabricate and install four unique, large-scale groupings of colorful grasses native to Minnesota.
