Stay in the Loop

North Loop Pedestrian & Street Improvements

The City of Minneapolis is undertaking two major North Loop projects – one to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety. the second to improve the condition of several neighborhood streets.

PEDESTRIAN IMPROVEMENT PROJECT
Intended to improve pedestrian and bicycle crossways at 22 intersections in the North Loop area by adding a combination of curb extensions, pedestrian crossing medians, Accessible Pedestrian Signals (APS), ADA compliant curb ramps, durable crosswalk markings, and upgrades to existing signals to add leading pedestrian intervals.

STREET RECONSTRUCTION
The City will be reconstructing several streets in the North Loop along with pedestrian spot improvements at about a dozen additional intersections. Public Works staff will be engaging with the community and business owners this summer and fall to gather input and to incorporate this feedback into a recommended design. North Loop Paving: http://www.minneapolismn.gov/cip/future/WCMSP-200196

Currently in the planning stages, both projects are scheduled to be completed in 2019.
