Hennepin Ave. S. reconstruction
The City will reconstruct Hennepin Ave. between W. Lake St. and Douglas Ave. We designed the layout to meet current and future needs.
- Improve the sidewalk and intersections for all users
- Evaluate a protected bikeway on Hennepin Ave. S.
- Create space for improved transit stops that work with the future METRO E Line Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)
- Replace aging traffic signal and stormwater infrastructure
- Maintain and improve mobility for transit and motor vehicles
- Meet the City's transportation and climate change goals
We did preplanning work in 2018 to apply for federal funding through the Metropolitan Council’s Regional Solicitation. Our ongoing planning work will include:
- Conducting technical work
- Collecting community feedback
- Reviewing policy guidance including the Transportation Action Plan, Complete Streets Policy and Vision Zero
We held virtual public meetings on March 2 and March 4, 2021 to discuss the project.

The project is currently in the input phase. Based on feedback, we have delayed street construction by one year. Construction is now planned to begin in 2024. The planning and design timeline will continue as planned, with layout approval in summer 2021. View project schedule.
