RCWD finalizing plan to recreate meanders in Rice Creek
Middle Rice Creek once meandered through Arden Hills before it was straightened in the mid-1900s, and after more than three-quarters of a century, the creek will be restored to a more winding route.
But before the creek's new flow can be completed and construction can start, community members and organizations like the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will have an opportunity to comment on a project document that was released to the public July 6.

Little Canada and Shoreview are still waiting on the Canadian Pacific Railroad to improve rail crossings in the cities to make them quiet zones so that crossing trains can silence their horns. The state set aside some $2 million for the work, which is now likely to be completed by early 2016. A 2.5-mile stretch of track and eight crossings are targeted; all the crossings must become quiet zones because train horns can carry long distances. From the top marked by dots, crossings will be improved at North Owasso Boulevard, Jerrold Avenue, Woodlyn Avenue, South Owasso Boulevard, Little Canada Road, Demont Avenue, County Road B2 and County Road B.

Nearly two months after Shoreview and Little Canada finalized agreements with Canadian Pacific Railroad for train quiet zones, a timeline for the completion of the zones is still up in the air.
