Pedestrian study

Minnetonka Boulevard crossing study

Hennepin County, in partnership with the City of St. Louis Park, is soliciting feedback from local residents on pedestrian crossing improvements along Minnetonka Boulevard (County Road 5). The focus of the project will be between Highway 169 and Highway 100.

The goal of this project is to improve pedestrian crossing access throughout the corridor. We want to know where you, the local residents and users, are currently crossing Minnetonka Boulevard, where you would prefer to cross or if you have any feedback on current crossing access. The feedback will be used to determine where to place temporary pedestrian crossing facilities in 2019 for trial, with permanent locations to be installed in 2020.
