North Commons Park Sidewalk Gap
Public Works has identified a sidewalk gap in North Commons Park in the Near North and Willard-Hay neighborhoods as part of the Sidewalk Gap Program. The objective of this program is to fill gaps in the sidewalk network as identified in the Minneapolis Pedestrian Master Plan. A connected and continuous sidewalk network better accommodates the needs of all pedestrians.
The City of Minneapolis will evaluate sidewalk gaps at the following locations:
- Morgan Ave N (18th Ave N – 16th Ave N)
- 16th Ave N (Logan Ave N – James Ave N)
The proposed project is scheduled to occur over the course of the 2019 construction season. The scope of the project will include constructing sidewalks with ADA ramps at impacted intersections.
City staff is currently in the preliminary stages of planning and design for the project, which will be accompanied by community outreach and engagement activities that will help inform and guide the design. Public Works relies on planning guidance and community input to inform the design of the sidewalk.
Project Schedule and Public Input
Public Works intends to advance a design concept of the sidewalk in Fall of 2018. Public Works will be engaging stakeholders in the spring and summer of 2018 to understand how residents use North Commons Park.
