Project information

Planned improvements

In coordination with the recent repaving project, the county and city are making the following changes to the corridor. 

    Completed 2019 work

    The county has recently completed upgrading the curb ramps at several intersections along the corridor.

    • Upgraded pedestrian curb ramps at several intersections throughout the corridor
    • Repaved the roadway between Marshall St NE and Johnson St NE
    • Converted the four-lane roadway to a three-lane roadway between 4th and Jackson Streets and between Tyler and Johnson streets (one lane in each direction with a shared center turn lane)
    • Installed a test closure median at Tyler Street to prohibit left turns
    • Changed the road to one lane in each direction at the railroad bridge at Buchanan Street

    Anticipated 2020 work

    • Repaving between Broadway Street between Johnson Street and Stinson Boulevard
    • Make intersection modifications at Johnson Street to improve sight 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.

    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.
