Franklin Ave

connects many different destinations and communities throughout the breadth of Minneapolis. Along it are the American Indian Cultural Corridor and Somali, Ethiopian and Oromo Communities. Franklin Avenue also has the second most crashes where people driving hit people walking or biking. The crash rate on the corridor is two and half times higher than what engineers call a "critical" crash rate.

Your County Commissioner works with the other elected County Commissioners to make the decisions about how transportation projects are prioritized on County Streets in Minneapolis. Make sure you let them know why it's important that Hennepin County prioritizes Lake Street, Lyndale Ave South, Franklin Ave and West Broadway Ave in Minneapolis.

Our goal is to reshape these streets so people can easily and comfortably walk, bike and roll on them.
