Industrial Boulevard Shared Use Trail
Public Works has identified a shared use trail connecting planned shared use trails on Broadway St NE and Industrial Blvd. The objective of this project is to connect the planned improvements for a continuous facility from Ridgway Parkway to Stinson Blvd NE.
The proposed project consists of a new off-street multi-use trail on the west side of Industrial Boulevard extending from the south side of I-35W to Broadway Street Northeast. The elements proposed to be included as part of the project includes a new curb-level multi-use trail, ADA compliant curb ramps, curb/gutter, and utility improvements. The project will also include pedestrian scale parkway lighting, planted trees within the boulevard where feasible, signage, and pavement markings. Public Works is partnering with Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (Park Board) to fund the project, with construction anticipated in 2019.
The project area is approximately 0.12 miles in length and currently consists of three southbound travel lanes, a center median, two northbound travel lanes, and no sidewalk within a 100-ft right-of-way. The adjacent land uses to the west side of the project area include a hotel and office space with driveways facing Industrial Boulevard.
The project layout was approved by the Transportation and Public Works Committee on November 27, 2018. The project is now in the design phase, and anticipated to be built during the 2019 construction season.
