24th Street Bikeway
Hennepin Avenue to 3rd Avenue South
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.
24th Street is a high demand corridor for biking today. Currently buses, motorists, and bicyclists all share the same space in the roadway. The goals of this bikeway project include:
- Promote traffic calming
- Enhance comfort and predictability for all users
- Support existing bicycle demand with improved infrastructure
- Improve bicycle network connectivity
- Provide bicycle access to destinations
Public Works is evaluating bikeway options on 24th Street, including dedicated bicycle lanes. Bicycle lanes can be installed on over half of the corridor without changing existing onstreet parking, but changes to parking may be needed on 24th Street between Hennepin & Lyndale Ave and Nicollet and 3rd Ave.
The proposed bikeway would be installed following the 24th Street resurfacing project in the summer of 2018. Currently, Public Works is conducting a parking study and talking with corridor stakeholders about bikeway design options. Public Works will provide a staff recommendation regarding the design of 24th Street to City Council for its consideration and approval in late 2017.
