Dowling Ave N between Thomas Ave N and Washington Ave N will be seal coated in 2014. The street reconditioning project allows for a logical time to reconfigure lane striping and implement projects identified in the 2011 Minneapolis Bicycle Master Plan.
Information to come

To accommodate bike lanes on Dowling Ave N, parking changes are proposed. The changes were shared with the five neighborhood organizations along the project corridor. A flyer was also distributed to all abutting properties along Dowling Ave N between Xerxes Ave N and Washington Ave N.
The proposed NO PARKING locations include:
- Xerxes Ave N to Thomas Ave N: No parking on both sides of street
- Thomas Ave N to Humboldt Ave N: No parking on north side of street
- Humboldt Ave N to Fremont Ave N: No parking on south side of street
- Fremont Ave N to Lyndale Ave N: No parking on north side of street
- Lyndale Ave N to Washington Ave N: No parking on both sides of street
The proposed parking changes and bike lane striping would occur following the seal coating project in late July of 2014.

Initial scoping has determined that bike lanes can be installed on Dowling Ave N between Thomas Ave N and Washington Ave N if parking is removed from one side of the street. Advisory bike lanes can be installed on Dowling Ave N between Xerxes Ave N and Thomas Ave N if parking is removed from both sides of the street. Public Works has shared these options with Council Member Johnson and Ward 4 staff. Public Works is currently conducting parking counts to assess parking demand along the corridor.
