Public Meeting for Southern Bike Connection
On Monday, August 30th, Public Works will host a public meeting to present a draft proposal for the Southern Bike Connection. This project includes a bicycle boulevard and on-street bike lanes. The meeting will be held at 6:30 pm at the Pearl Lake Rec Center (414 E Diamond Lake Road). The meeting will discuss:
- Changes to 17th Avenue S, between 38th Street and Minnehaha Parkway
- Proposed bike lanes on Bloomington Ave S, between 47th Street and 54th Street
- Proposed bike lanes on 54th Street, between Nokomis Parkway and 12th Ave S
- Changes to 12th Avenue S, between 54th Street and 60th Street
Minneapolis Public Works has developed a layout (pdf) with several options. All options will not be constructed. The public will be asked to rank preferences for traffic calming and improvements to busy crossings.
Public meeting flyers have been distributed to properties along 17th Avenue S, 54th Street E, and 12th Avenue S.
