In 2021, project staff will engage with Midtown Greenway users and surrounding communities to identify challenges and opportunities of accessing and using the Greenway corridor today, prioritize needs and share initial designs.

We want to hear from you!

Hennepin County, the City of Minneapolis and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board are working together to build a new Midtown Greenway ramp between Harriet and Garfield avenues.  

The new ramp will improve access to the Greenway and be designed for people of all abilities, while preserving the integrity of the Soo Line Garden.

To get the project moving, we want to hear from Midtown Greenway users and residents in the surrounding communities to identify current access challenges and opportunities for improvement. Later this year, we plan to share initial designs and gather feedback.
