Project Details

Lucy Laney School is located on or near two high volume streets, Penn Ave N and Lowry Ave N. The school has 600 students in grades K-8 and many students cross these high volume roadways on their way to school. Recently  an organized walk-to-school group has encouraged more students to walk to school, while many others walk on their own.

In 2013 Public Works applied for and was awarded federal Safe Routes dollars to improve pedestrian crossings near Lucy Laney School. The details of the projects were discussed and feedback was taken at a Folwell Neighborhood Association Meeting in November 2013. Cleveland Neighborhood Association members were asked to attend this meeting as well. Penn and Lowry are both under Hennepin County jurisdiction and the project design was developed in extensive collaboration with Hennepin County engineers. The stamped median on Penn will not impact parking or travel lanes. The pedestrian shelter median on Lowry will terminate one westbound travel lane 1/2 block to the east in order to eliminate the "double threat" to pedestrians crossing multiple lanes of traffic.
