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:
- Change to two- or three-lane configuration for roadway travel
- 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
Crews will be repaving the road starting September 18. After that work is complete, the new striping improvements will go in.
