Draft Protected Bikeway Update to the Bicycle Master Plan

The City of Minneapolis is seeking to update its Bicycle Master Plan to include a priority network of protected bikeways. The update will help in planning as the City works to install 30 miles of on-street protected bike facilities by 2020, as recommended in the City’s 2013 Climate Action Plan. The draft plan update is complete and available for public comment.

The City of Minneapolis will hold an open house meeting to give the public an opportunity to review the draft plan update and provide feedback. 

Open House
