Minneapolis Pedestrian and Bicycling Winter Maintenance Study

Minneapolis is committed to year-round walking and bicycling as safe, accessible and convenient options for its residents and visitors. Recently the City completed a Pedestrian and Bicycle Winter Maintenance Study. The goal of the study is to identify alternative winter maintenance options to enhance the quality and consistency of clearing snow and ice from sidewalks and bikeways, which would improve safety, accessibility and mobility for people that walk, bike, and take transit in Minneapolis.

The study presents information, data, and implementation cost considerations of pedestrian and bicycle winter maintenance practices such that the City can determine opportunities for continued improvement. This study provides a framework for continued conversation with the community, interested stakeholders and policy makers.

The study is divided into three primary sections, plus a appendix:

More information can be found in the Minneapolis Pedestrian and Winter Maintenance Study and the Winter Maintenance Study Supplemental Report.
