Project Background

In 2018, the Minneapolis Public Works Department plans to resurface one mile of 24th Street West between Hennepin Avenue and 3rd Avenue South. The resurfacing project provides an opportunity to implement a bikeway on this segment of 24th Street, as identified in the Minneapolis Bicycle Master Plan. The proposed bikeway project is being coordinated with the 2018 resurfacing project, but includes independent funding sources and planning processes. More information about the resurfacing project can be found on the resurfacing project webpage.

Project Goals

24th Street is a high demand corridor for biking today. Currently buses, motorists, and bicyclists all share the same space along 24th Street. Even without an existing bikeway, an average of 230-290 people bicycle on the corridor daily and 1 out of 5 observed bicyclists on 24th Street were riding on the sidewalk in 2017 (Minneapolis Bicycle & Pedestrian Counts). A dedicated bikeway on 24th Street will allow people who bike to ride more safely and predictably and benefit all users of the corridor regardless of travel mode.  

The goals of the 24th Street bikeway project include:

Proposed Bikeway Layout

The proposed bikeway layout aims to balance the needs and priorities of different users along the corridor including people walking, taking transit, bicycling, and driving. Public Works considered the following factors to develop the proposed 24th Street Bikeway layout:

Project Schedule

The proposed bikeway would be installed following the 24th Street resurfacing project in the summer of 2018. Between July and January 2017, Public Works collected data, conducted a parking study, and collected feedback at 30+ meetings with individual stakeholders and neighborhood groups. Public Works is currently meeting with stakeholders to share the proposed bikeway layout. Public WorksIn March 2018, Public Works will provide a staff recommendation regarding the 24th Street bikeway design to City Council for its consideration and approval.
