8th St SE Bikeway Layout (pdf)
In 2017, the Minneapolis Public Works Department plans to resurface 8th Street Southeast between Central Avenue Northeast and 15th Avenue Southeast. This segment of 8th Street Southeast is identified in the Minneapolis Bicycle Master Plan and the resurfacing project provides a logical time to implement the planned bikeway and improve the operation of the street.
Proposed Street Design
To provide a comfortable space for people riding bicycles and reduce conflicts between users of the street, dedicated bicycle lanes are the recommended bikeway design on 8th Street Southeast. To install bicycle lanes, parking removal is required on one side of the street. Public Works is conducting a parking a study to help understand the impact of this proposed change.
Bicycle lanes on 8th Street Southeast would connect to several existing and planned bikeways in one of the busiest areas for bicycling in the city. In addition to providing a dedicated space for people riding bicycles, the proposed configuration includes narrower travel lanes and improved striping, which encourages slower speeds and creates a more organized street for all users.
