Location: Hennepin Ave to 5th Ave Downtown
Hennepin County will finish its reconstruction of Washington Avenue from Hennepin Ave to 5th Ave in downtown Minneapolis in 2017.
Additionally, the County will re-stripe the lanes on Washington Avenue from 5th Ave to I-35W. This re striping will reduce the outlined portion of Washington from three lanes to two, leaving room for full-time parking and bikeway. It is a fantastic opportunity to extend the protected bikeway on the reconstructed segment almost to the University of Minnesota.Read more
Project: Southside Greenway
10th, 11th, or 12th Ave - Downtown to Richfield
The Southside Greenway project is looking into community support for a safe and inviting route which would connect 12 parks in Downtown and South Minneapolis, using the concept of a "greenway," where cars are not the number one priority. The concept of a "full greenway" converts a residential street to a neighborhood park. This project is in the early planning and surveying stage, and an exact route has not yet been selected by the community.
