5th Street Northeast Bikeway
Project Type: Bikeway Upgrade
Project Year: 2018
Project Limits: 5th Street Northeast from East Hennepin Avenue to 9th Avenue Northeast
In 2018, the Minneapolis Public Works Department plans to resurface 5th Street NE between E Hennepin Avenue and 9th Avenue NE. This resurfacing project provides an opportunity to upgrade the current bikeway to create a more comfortable bicycling experience.
- Enhance comfort and predictability for all users
- Promote traffic calming through narrower vehicle lanes
- Support existing bicycle demand with improved infrastructure
The travel lanes and parking will be narrowed in each direction between E Hennepin Ave and 1st Ave NE to add a 3’ buffer to the bike lanes. Travel lanes would be narrowed between 6th Ave NE and 3rd Ave NE to widen the existing bike lane to provide more room outside of the gutter area for bicyclist.
All other segments would be replaced in kind with no changes to the street design. No parking removal is necessary for these changes.
