Hennepin County Requests Your Thoughts on the Washington Avenue Project

Via an e-newsletter from Hennepin County:

Washington Avenue and South 2nd Avenue intersection

Washington Avenue user survey

We want to better understand your experiences on Washington Avenue South (County Road 152) since the road was reconstructed.

In 2017 Hennepin County reconstructed Washington Avenue between Hennepin Avenue and 5th Avenue South in downtown Minneapolis. The project, completed in a partnership with the City of Minneapolis, updated the road for all users. New features include:

  • cycle track and bicycle signals
  • shortened crossing distances for people walking
  • enhanced streetscaping, including trees, plantings and benches
  • improved driving surfaces
  • dedicated turn lanes at key intersections

Now that people have had some time to use these features, we are collaborating with the city to gather feedback from users like you. We have designed a survey for each type of road use. Please take whichever survey(s) best describe your typical use(s):

The surveys will close Friday, May 17.
