Upper Bee Branch Creek Restoration

Completed in July 2017


The Upper Bee Branch Creek Restoration Project, now known as the Bee Branch Creek Greenway, began in June 2015, and was completed in July 2017. The project was finished approximately 3 months ahead of schedule and $800,000 under budget. The greenway is designed to take on storm water during rain events and move it safely through the area without flooding adjacent properties. It features a 1,938-foot long creek and floodplain, a multi-use trail system, a play area with slides, scenic overlooks, an urban orchard and garden, and an outdoor amphitheater which provides a venue for teaching and neighborhood gatherings. To learn more about the greenway's trail system and amenities, visit www.cityofdubuque.org/beebranchcreekgreenway.
