35th Street safety improvements

This is a Vision Zero project. The City will install safety treatments using paint and bollards. These treatments will help prevent severe injuries and deaths from traffic crashes.

Key information




35th St between Nicollet Ave and Hiawatha

Project overview

The Vision Zero Capital Program will install cost effective safety improvements that

  • Help to end crashes
  • Promote safer driving

These improvements provide a similar user experience as

  • Curb extensions
  • Medians
  • Lane narrowing

The goals of these safety improvements are to increase the safety of all users because they

  • Promote safe driving
  • Lower vehicle speeds
  • Reduce crossing distances for people walking
  • Improve visibility at intersections
