Hennepin County continues to communicate and engage with the community. Since the community listening session in 2019, the county has been gathering data and reviewing engineering for Lyndale Avenue. With new efforts underway to make improvements, the county will provide additional opportunities to engage regarding Lyndale Avenue.
One way to stay informed is to sign up for updates at the bottom of this page. In addition, participate in ongoing outreach and provide feedback on the upcoming 4- to 3- lane pilot project that will be implemented this summer.
Engage with the project team:
Prior to the three-lane pilot striping, we are providing engagement opportunities to inform the community of the changes. Once the roadway has been repaved and restriped, we will again be out in the community to collect feedback on the benefits and challenges of the lane changes.
We are also presenting to community organizations and will be staffing informational tables where people frequent and gather. Sign up for project email updates below or check back here for more details on these events.
