The final design of this project was based heavily on input from area communities, residents and stakeholders. Many expressed interest in creating a safer and more pleasant experience for all road users, especially pedestrians and bicyclists.
A working group studied transportation issues in this area and considered possible measures that could be implemented with the paving project. The group consisted of representatives from the Field Regina Northrup, Kingfield and Tangletown Neighborhood associations, as well as city and county staff. Local businesses and property owners were also engaged in this process.
Thank you to all who contributed to the planning of the new 46th Street!
A working group was established to study transportation issues in the area and to examine actions which could be implemented with the paving project.

In May 2016, the project attended the following to get statements of support:
- May 11: Kingfield/Tangletown neighborhood association meeting

On October 21, 2015, residents and business owners were invited to an informational open house to share their thoughts and observations to help guide the study and planning of the 46th Street resurfacing project. A map of the area was displayed to allow posting of comments and to identify problem areas. Hennepin County staff also provided information on existing traffic volumes, crash history and background on previous ideas for improvement.
