In preparation for protected bikeways on University and possibly 4th St SE, between 10th St and Oak St., the city is leading the outreach and has convened a stakeholder group. The stakeholder group, comprised of business owners along the corridor, students & faculty at UMN, staff involved in transportation and planning on campus and community groups, were invited to share their experiences interacting with this corridor.
In general, the discussion has been about the possibility of a two-way protected bikeway on University, or a pair of one-way protected bikeways on University and 4th.
Location: Between 10th St and Oak St
The City is leading the outreach, working with County. Simon Blenski is the lead at the City. A group of stakeholders has been formed that includes businesses in the corridor, UMN student groups, and staff at the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition.
