Oak Street Protected Bikeway Project


Project Details

Project Background

A two way delineator protected bikeway was installed on Oak Street Southeast in 2015. This project will upgrade this facility.

2017 Construction Work – from Fulton Street to Essex Street

In 2017, the large majority of the delineators between Fulton Street Southeast and Essex Street Southeast will be replaced with a raised concrete median to formalize the separation between the two-way bicycle lane and the existing parking. This project is an extension of the raised median protected bicycle lane that exists between Fulton Street Southeast and West River Parkway.

Construction Detours

While the work is occurring, there will be a detour in place for both directions of the bike lane on this block and for southbound vehicle traffic. See the suggested detour route map.

Meters on the west side of the street will be hooded and not available for parking. Northbound traffic will be maintained, and the meters on the east side of the street will be available for parking. Anticipated duration of the closures will extend past the actual construction in order to develop sufficient strength on the concrete. The lane closures could last up to two weeks. 

If there are major University of Minnesota sporting events, we will adjust our schedule accordingly to reopen the southbound vehicle driving lane. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the construction, we will not be able to re-open the bike lane or allow parking on the west side of the street until the work is complete.

2018 Intersection Redesign Project – Oak Street and Delaware Street

Currently, SouthWest Transit, Plymouth Metrolink, and University of Minnesota transit all serve a southbound farside bus stop along the bikeway at the corner of Oak Street Southeast and Delaware Street Southeast. The project seeks to improve the 2015 design of the bus stop.
