Feedback on 4- to 3-lane pilot project needed
In July 2022, the county restriped Lyndale Avenue between Franklin Avenue and 31st Street from four driving lanes to three: one travel lane in each direction with a center turn lane. This pilot project provides an opportunity to observe the benefits and impacts to Lyndale Avenue and the surrounding neighborhoods, which is an important next step to help inform a future vision for the corridor.
Take our survey to help determine what’s next
Hennepin County will continue to analyze the benefits and impacts of the three-lane design through February 2023. We will be studying data that we have collected before and after the change. We will also consider what we have heard from the community.
Your input is especially important right now. Please take our survey.
Your feedback and the data collected will inform the decision making for the next steps for the four- to three-lane pilot in spring 2023.
Previous engagement activities
Before implementing the 4- to 3-lane pilot, we heard from residents and Lyndale Avenue users, listening to what they wanted, were excited for, concerned about, and liked. The attached infographic shows the engagement highlights from April to July 2022.
