Stay in the Loop

North Loop Street and Pedestrian Improvement Project Surveys

Kim Eslinger : Mill City Times : August 3, 2017
The City of Minneapolis is undertaking two major North Loop projects: One to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety, and 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. http://www.minneapolismn.gov/cip/future/north-loop-ped-improvements
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. http://www.minneapolismn.gov/cip/future/WCMSP-200196
 Currently in the planning stages, both projects are scheduled to be completed in 2019. The City of Minneapolis Department of Public Works is holding a series of public meetings to gather feedback regarding the proposed project.
