Central Avenue Bicycle Facility Planning Meeting, September 29

The City of Minneapolis is conducting a study to evaluate alternatives for implementing bicycle facilities along Central Ave NE. The project limits extend north from the Mississippi River to the City limits at 37th Ave NE. An informational meeting is scheduled for September 29 at 6:30pm at the Northeast Library, 2200 Central Ave NE.

The City and its consultant, HDR, are currently using feedback received at past presentations to the public, advisory committees and City's agency partners to narrow the concepts down to a preferred alternative that safely serves all road users and the communities that the corridor passes through. The City welcomes any additional feedback that may help determine appropriate solutions to this opportunity.

In addition, Minneapolis Public Works is gearing up to conduct its 3rd annual Bicycle and Pedestrian Count, and you can volunteer to help. Volunteers will be asked to count the number of bicyclists and pedestrians at several locations around the city. The main day for counting will be Tuesday, Sept. 15, although other days are available. Volunteers will sign up for various two-hour time slots, and are particularly needed from 4 to 6 p.m. on the 15th.

Minneapolis Public Works conducts bicyclist and pedestrian counts in order to understand the impact of non-motorized travel on streets, sidewalks, and bike paths. Accurate counts enable the City to plan and build for bicyclists and pedestrians, while tracking what's successful and what should be done differently.

If you're interested in volunteering, register online or contact Shaun Murphy at shaun.murphy@ci.minneapolis.mn.us or (612)275-5128.
