Downtown Bikeways Work Group October 2019 Update

Downtown Bikeways Work Group members at their October 2019 meeting

Pedestrian Work Group

The Pedestrian Work Group hosted a Walk & Talk on Lyndale Ave S in September. Folks can watch and read news coverage of the walk on the City Pages website

Franklin Avenue Corridor Study

Hennepin County is performing a corridor study for Franklin Avenue. There will be upcoming opportunities to show support for safer street infrastructure for people who travel by wheelchair, bicycle, foot or transit. Stay tuned for more or reach out to get involved.

Blaisdell Avenue Bollards

The City recently installed bollards on Blaisdell Avenue. While we support this action we know that it isn’t the safest solution for people who travel by bicycle.

Vision Zero

The City of Minneapolis recently released a draft Vision Zero plan. Folks can view information about the plan on the City's Vision Zero Minneapolis website

County Budget

Hennepin County is releasing their 5-year capital improvement plan for infrastructure. It’ll be important for us to comment on the current plan and lack of quick build infrastructure improvements to make some of the most dangerous streets in our city safe for people who walk, bike, and use wheelchairs to get around.

Name Change

Our Streets Minneapolis is considering changing the name of the Downtown Bikeways and Pedestrian Work Groups to create a more accurate and inclusive brand for what we do. Some ideas:

  • People for Safer Streets Work Group
  • People who Roll Work Group
  • People who Bike Work Group
  • People on Wheels Work Group


Future Meetings

In the future, the meetings are likely to be focused on strategy and around taking actions (e.g. letter writing)

Come to our next meeting Monday, November 4th, 6:00-7:30pm at the Dunn Brothers at 329 W 15th Street to be a part of the discussion! E-mail Ash at ash@ourstreetsmpls.org for more information.
