Oak Street Protected Bikeway Project

Project Details

2018 Project Construction

In 2018, the Oak St SE and Delaware St SE intersection will be upgraded to include a floating transit island (i.e. a separate space for transit riders to enter and exit the bus adjacent to the protected bikeway). The project will also include new pedestrian ramps at all four corners of the intersection, new crosswalk markings, and an upgraded signal system. Lastly, the project will replace the large majority of delineators that demarcate the bikeway with a raised concrete median to formalize the separation between the two-way bicycle lane and the existing parking. This will be an extension of the raised median protected bicycle lane that exists between Essex St SE and West River Parkway.

Construction Detours

While the work is occurring, there will be traffic detours for both cyclists and vehicles. When detour routes have been determined they will be posted on this website. Please check back for more information.

Project History

A two way delineator protected bikeway was installed on Oak St. SE in 2015. Currently, SouthWest Transit, Plymouth Metrolink, and University of Minnesota transit all serve a southbound far side bus stop along the bikeway at the corner of Oak St. SE and Delaware St. SE. The project seeks to improve the 2015 design of the bus stop.
