Project information

Transportation study

Since fall 2018, Hennepin County and partners have been working on a corridor study of ways to improve safety for all people using this road. The study identified design needs and concepts. More than 1,000 participants have provided input for this project through surveys, task force meetings, and an open house.

Planned improvements

In coordination with the upcoming repaving project to extend the life of the pavement, the county and city are proposing to implement the following:

  • Convert the 4-lane roadway between 4th and Jackson streets and between Tyler and Johnson streets to a 3-lane roadway (one lane in each direction with shared center turn lane)
  • Install a test closure median at Tyler Street to prohibit left turns
  • Change the road to one lane in each direction at the railroad bridge at Buchanan Street
  • Make intersection modifications at Johnson Street to improve site distance for left turning vehicles

Public involvement

As part of the planning for this repaving project, the county, city, and neighborhood residents have formed a task force. The goals of this task force are to develop a short-term and long-term vision for improved safety and comfort along the corridor.

The task force study group includes representatives from each of the seven neighborhoods in the Broadway Street Northeast corridor. The study group meetings are also open to all interested residents - contact any of the study contacts for more information.
