Greendale Root River Parkway Project

Root River Parkway Project


The County recently began a project on the Root River Parkway between College Ave (at 92nd Street) east to the Root River Bridge, which includes the following improvements:
  • Additional parking to serve the Whitnall Beer Garden and nearby recreational amenities.
  • Replace pavement on the existing parkway, including new concrete curb and gutter and stormwater infrastructure.
  • Provide an off road path for pedestrian and bicycle use and provide better connectivity to the beer garden.
  • Install new LED lighting in the parking lot.
  • Utilize stormwater green infrastructure to provide bio-infiltration of stormwater runoff.
During construction the roadway will be closed for several weeks beginning in August 2022.   Cars should use S. 92nd Street to Grange Avenue as a detour.
