Lake Street

is a prominent commercial corridor in Minneapolis that connects the Chain of Lakes, Uptown, Midtown, and the Longfellow communities. Lake Street has historically been a home to new immigrant families and businesses, and is home to many important cultural destinations like Karmel Mall, Plaza Mexico, Mercado Central, and the Somali Museum. Unfortunately, Lake Street also has some of the most dangerous intersections in Minneapolis, especially at intersections with other Hennepin County streets like Cedar, Portland, and Lyndale Avenues.

Goals for Lake Street

We are working with our community partners and you to set our goals for Lake Street. Interested in learning more about this work and how you can help shape this effort? Contact Cindy.


In the wake of the Uprising following George Floyd’s murder, many people are still hurting from seeing their beloved community destroyed and damaged along Lake Street.  Our community partner Lake Street Council is stepping back from this campaign to focus on recovery efforts with organizations and businesses along Lake street.  This street is still a priority of ours and we will re-engage when our partners are able to devote capacity to this project. To help Lake Street rebuild, you can donate here.



Contact Your County Commissioner

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.
