West 29th Street Shared Use Street Project (Lyndale to Bryant Avenues South)

Partners: CPED, Public Works

Budget: $145,000

Status: Four emerging artists have been selected to create designs for public artworks to be integrated into West 29th Street. These artists will share their draft design concepts in spring of 2016 at a community open house. Two finalists will be chosen in April 2016. Construction will begin in the summer of 2016.

Installation of these works will occur in the summer of 2017.

The West 29th Street Shared Use Street Project involves the complete reconstruction of the street and sidewalks along the 2-block stretch from Lyndale to Bryant. The City of Minneapolis is creating its first shared use street, an innovative design in which pedestrians and bicyclists are given priority over motor vehicles. While cars are permitted, they must travel at low speeds and parking is limited. Typically shared use streets have no curbs – traffic calming and design elements are used to slow drivers to safe speeds.

The goals of this project include selecting designs that:

This two-block stretch of West 29th St. is a pilot project. If it is successful, the shared use concept will be considered for three additional blocks on West 29th St. (Bryant to Dupont Avenues South, and Emerson to Fremont Avenues South.)
