President's Bike Boulevard
In an effort to connect a long existing bicycle network gap and create an enhanced pedestrian environment along East Hennepin Ave, Public Works will redesign the crossing at 5th Ave SE and Pierce St NE in 2020. Hennepin County will be resurfacing East Hennepin Ave from 8th St SE to Stinson Blvd; this will reduce the number of travel lanes from 4 to 3 and add buffered bicycle facilities for a portion of the corridor.

The proposed .12 mile long project is scheduled to occur over the course of the 2020 construction season. The scope of the project will encompass the functional ROW and include the extension of the northerly curb to accommodate the off-street protected trail. East Hennepin Ave will be repaved by Hennepin County and be replaced with a smooth driving surface.
City and County staff are currently in the preliminary stages of planning and design for the project, which will be accompanied by community outreach activities that will help inform and guide design concepts. Public Works relies on planning guidance and community input to inform the design of streets.

Project Schedule and Public Input
Public Works intends to advance a layout of these streets for City Council approval by spring 2019
Public Works will be engaging stakeholders in the spring and summer of 2019 to understand what design elements are important to consider in the Beltrami Neighborhood. There may be opportunities to explore unique features and interests specific to the neighborhood as part of this project.
