Midtown Greenway access improvement

Hennepin County, the City of Minneapolis and Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, are working together to build a new Midtown Greenway ramp between Harriet and Garfield avenues. Our goal for the new ramp is to improve access to the Greenway and be designed for people of all abilities, while preserving the integrity of the Soo Line Garden.

In 2021, project staff will engage with Midtown Greenway users and surrounding communities to identify challenges and opportunities of accessing and using the Greenway corridor today, prioritize needs and share initial designs.

Construction is anticipated to begin in 2023.

Project timeline showing the design phase planned from 2021 to 2022 and construction and project completion expected for 2023.

Upcoming outreach and events

There will be additional opportunities in the near future to provide your feedback as we want to continue to hear from Midtown Greenway users, Soo Line Garden members and visitors, and residents in the surrounding communities to identify current access challenges and opportunities for improvement.
