Community survey

Prior to the design, Hennepin County evaluated opportunities to identify top priorities for improvements. Starting in November 2019, the project team conducted a survey and participated in online and in-person engagement with the goal of talking with community members and learning about ways to improve Osseo Road between Penn and 49th avenues. 

We thank everyone who participated in the survey on how we can make this road work better for your community.

Below is a link of some of the key findings based on survey responses, as well as social media and face-to-face interactions.

Features

The county is determining other features of the reconstruction. The goals of the design process include:

  • Improving roadway and intersection safety
  • Enhancing traffic operations
  • Improving the corridor for people biking, walking, rolling, riding the bus and driving

The existing roadway has reached the end of its service life and is due for replacement. The reconstruction will replace existing pavement, curbs, gutters, sidewalks and storm water structures.
