We are creating a movement to put people first on Hennepin County owned streets in Minneapolis.
West Broadway Ave
West Broadway Ave is the commercial heart of North Minneapolis and is home to several prominent community organizations, and public space for community gathering. The Northside business district boasts a diverse, young, and growing population, and will only grow further with new housing developments on the horizon.
More than half of pedestrian crashes on West Broadway occur within 100 feet of a bus stop. High frequency transit route 5 crosses West Broadway Ave at Penn Ave N, Fremont Ave N and Emerson Ave N. The intersection of Lyndale Ave and West Broadway has a frequent local bus route and the most pedestrian crashes.
Goals for West Broadway Ave
We are working with our community partners and you to set our goals for West Broadway.

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.
