Marshall Street Northeast corridor study

County Road 23 in Northeast Minneapolis

Hennepin County and the City of Minneapolis studied options for making Marshall Street (County Road 23) between 10th Avenue and St. Anthony Parkway safer and more comfortable for people walking, biking, taking transit and driving. This transportation feasibility study was completed in 2018.

The county plans to repave Marshall Street between Lowry Avenue (County Road 153) and 37th Avenue in 2023. As part of the repaving project, Hennepin County is evaluating ways to improve comfort and safety for all people using the corridor.

More about the corridor

Marshall Street is a key north-south roadway in Northeast Minneapolis. The corridor is characterized by a mix of land uses, including commercial, residential and light industrial. Though on-street parking along the corridor serves people driving to local destinations, the roadway currently lacks transit routes and bicycle facilities.

The 2023 mill and overlay project will repave Marshall Street between Lowry Avenue and 37th Avenue. Marshall Street is identified in the Hennepin County Bicycle Transportation Plan and City of Minneapolis All Ages and Abilities bikeway network as a future dedicated bike route. As part of the repaving project, Hennepin County is evaluating ways to improve comfort and safety for all people traveling along the corridor.

Upcoming engagement

Hennepin County expects to engage with the community in summer 2022 in preparation for the 2023 overlay and restriping.

Previous studies

Over the last 20 years, there have been several studies and efforts to plan for improvements to the corridor by enhancing pedestrian and bicycle facilities and adding more extensive street landscaping. The most recent study was completed in 2018.

The goals of the 2018 study included:

  • Developing planning level concepts for corridor layout
  • Balancing all modes of transportation throughout the corridor
  • Improving connections and access to the river and green spaces
  • Planning for accessible, continuous and separated bikeways and sidewalks
  • Strengthening connections to Marshall Street's businesses and destinations
  • Working with all stakeholders to develop sustainable parking solutions, create safe places for all users, and improve transit connections
