Pedestrian Advisory Committee Resolution
To: Minneapolis City Council
Minneapolis Public Works
From: Minneapolis Pedestrian Advisory Committee
Date: February 6, 2019
Subject: Webber Parkway Reconstruction project
The Pedestrian Advisory Committee supports the Webber Parkway Reconstruction project, with these caveats. We are asking for 6-ft minimums for the sidewalks, vehicle lanes at 10-ft widths and gutters at 1.5-ft widths, mid-block marked crossings, and the elimination of driveway openings whenever possible. We are very glad to see the pedestrian scale lighting and the bumpouts at pedestrian crossings as well as the addition of more trail connections. We appreciate the inclusion of RRFBs (Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons) at some unsignalized pedestrian crossings along the corridor, and ADA-accessible curb ramps provided at all legal crosswalks.
