"As a U.S. Representative for Minnesota’s 4th Congressional District, Bruce Vento (1940–2000) was recognized for his environmental cleanup efforts. His namesake regional trail begins right below the streets on the eastern edge of downtown Saint Paul. From the parking lot just off of East Seventh Street, the paved trail winds down a wildflower-covered embankment, then immediately swings north and passes under East Seventh Street. Like a massive gateway to this hiking corridor, the Seventh Street Improvement Arches that carry the traffic above make a bold and historic first impression. Built in 1884, the arches represent the only structure of their kind in Minnesota and are among very few examples of this type of construction in the United States. The limestone was quarried in Saint Paul and the Minnesota Valley." Read more
