Bicycle Boulevards

Design Guidelines for Bicycle Boulevards (pdf)

A "Bicycle Boulevard" (pdf) is a low-volume and low-speed street that has been optimized for bicycle travel through treatments such as traffic calming and traffic reduction, roadway signing and pavement markings, and intersection crossing treatments. Bicycle boulevards take the shared roadway concept to a new level, creating an attractive, comfortable, and convenient cycling environment that caters to all cyclist abilities.

Minneapolis has 6 funded bicycle boulevard corridors:

If you live along a funded bike boulevard, or will be using one of these streets on your bicycle or in your automobile, the City would like to hear your feedback and questions. Please contact: Shaun Murphy, Non-Motorized Pilot Coordinator, [email protected], 612-333-2450. Or, feel welcome to use our online feedback form.
