Project Limits:
East side of Hiawatha Avenue from 28th Street to 32nd Street

In 1999, Hiawatha Avenue was constructed with a 12 foot wide concrete trail on the west side of the corridor. In 2004, the light rail project reduced the width of this trail significantly to a standard sidewalk width between 28th Street and 32nd Street, creating a trail gap. There is no facility on the east side of Hiawatha Avenue between 28th Street and Lake Street. There is an irregular width sidewalk on the east side of Hiawatha Avenue between Lake Street and East 32nd Street. This project would restore the bicycling connection that once existed and provide a safe place for pedestrians.
