Current work

Glenwood Avenue open to traffic

In September 2017, crews completed work on Glenwood Avenue (County Road 40) between Highway 55 and Highway 100.

The newly paved and striped Glenwood Avenue features:

  • Slightly narrow the lanes by one to two feet to encourage lower speeds and better adherence to the posted speed limit.

  • Designate the existing roadway shoulders as on-road bike lanes.

During summer 2017, Hennepin County repaved and restriped Glenwood Avenue from Highway 55 to Highway 100 as part of its pavement maintenance effort.

The idea to restripe the road was based on current use and to improve safety during discussions between the City of Golden Valley and the county.

The proposal included:

  • Slightly narrowing the lanes of Glenwood Avenue 1-2 feet to encourage lower speeds and better adherence to the posted speed limit.
  • Designating the existing roadway shoulders as on-road bike lanes.

The reconfiguration of the roadway shoulders as bike lines includes signage that clarifies that no on-street parking would be allowed in the bike lanes.

There may be additional refinement and enhancements to this road in the future.
