In 2017, the Minneapolis Public Works Department plans to resurface 38th Street West between Bryant Avenue South and Lyndale Avenue South. This segment of 38th Street West 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. The 2017 project is just one segment of a future 4.5-mile bikeway on 38th Street West/East.
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 38th Street West. To install bicycle lanes, parking removal is required on one side of the street. Public Works has conducted a parking study and determined that there is available on-street parking capacity on Bryant Avenue South, Aldrich Avenue South, and Lyndale Avenue South. There are also off-street parking options for most adjacent properties.
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.
