29th Street Reconstruction

29TH St W

Shared Street Evaluation Survey

29th Street W from Bryant Avenue to Lyndale Avenue is the first “Shared Street” in the City of Minneapolis. In general, a Shared Street is one where vehicles, pedestrians, and bicycles share the same public roadway. The City of Minneapolis is evaluating the performance and perception of this Shared Street and we would appreciate your feedback by completing this short survey.
