Changes to Hennepin & 1st Avenue

Hennepin and 1st Avenues downtown have been converted from 1-way to 2-way streets. For bicyclists, this means several changes:

Each of these changes can be explored in depth on the project website. Video simulations, MP3 files, and cross sections of the project are available on this website. For a closer look at the bullet points above, read What Bicyclists & Driver Need to Know (pdf).

Please exercise patience as all road users acclimate to the changes. Your patience is also appreciated as city crews will be working over the coming months to bring the project to 100% completion.
