Project Details

The painted curb extensions consist of interim materials including paint, non-skid pavement colorization, and reflective flexible delineators.

In 2013, Minneapolis Public Works installed the first iteration of painted curb extenstions as a pedestrian improvement pilot project.

In 2015, the pilot has been expanded to include intersections along E 38th St at Stevens Ave S, 2nd Ave S and the intersection of 2nd St NE at 3rd Ave N.

 

Curb extensions can have the following benefits:

Project Updates

September 2015

The painted curb extensions at 31st St have been reinstalled with an refreshed and adjusted design including a high-visibility pavement marking within the painted curb extension zone to provide a contrast between it and the travel lanes. New locations this year along E 38th St at Stevens Ave S, 2nd Ave S and another at 2nd St NE at 3rd Ave NE have been installed as additional test pilot locations.

January 20, 2015

The painted curb extension bollards have been removed to accommodate winter street maintenance. Spring 2015, the painted curb extensions will return with an adjusted design based on feedback received.
