Marshall Street Northeast improvements
County Road 23 in Northeast Minneapolis
As part of an upcoming repaving project on Marshall Street NE between Lowry Avenue and 37th Street, county staff reviewed and evaluated studies and data to understand current and future needs of people using this corridor. This included a review of crashes, traffic operations and county and city transportation plans including the 2018 Marshall Street NE Transportation Feasibility Study.
In addition, staff received comments from the neighborhoods and stakeholders through meetings, online comments, phone calls and emails. Common themes from this engagement included support for on-street bike lanes between Lowry Avenue and St. Anthony Parkway with parking removal on one side of the roadway and safety concerns related to vehicles speeding and pedestrians crossing.
As a result of the county’s evaluation and public engagement, county staff recommend striping revisions to Marshall Street NE that include:
- Removal of 4-lane undivided roadway sections
- Addition of dedicated left-turn lanes at four signalized intersections
- Addition of on-street bike lanes between Lowry Avenue and St. Anthony Parkway
- Maintaining on-street parking on the east side of the roadway
The improvements will go in sometime in late spring, summer or fall 2023 and this page will be updated when a more exact schedule is available. Construction impacts will be relatively minor, with a few partial closures over the course of a few days. Crews will grind up the top few inches of existing road surface and replace it with a fresh layer that is smoother to travel on and extends roadway life.
