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:
- 5th Street NE and SE (including 26th Avenue NE)
- 22nd Avenue NE (including Arthur St NE)
- 40th Street E (RiverLake Greenway)
- Bryant Avenue S
- Fillmore/Polk/Tyler Streets NE (including 6th Avenue SE)
