Webber 44 corridor reconstruction

County Road 152 in Minneapolis

Hennepin County, in coordination with the City of Minneapolis and Metro Transit, is preparing to reconstruct County Road 152 in north Minneapolis. This will include a segment of 44th Avenue, Webber Parkway and a segment of Lyndale Avenue North, hence the short name of "Webber 44" for the name of this project.

Construction is tentatively planned for 2021.

Project information

Project overview

Along 44th Avenue and Webber Parkway, the existing 2-lane roadway section with on street parking will remain. Lyndale Avenue will be converted to a 3-lane roadway between 42nd and 41st avenues to improve safety and allow for an off-street bicycle path.

We will make safety improvements along the corridor, including adding dedicated turn lanes and new traffic signals and removing unwarranted traffic signals.

We will replace deteriorated curbs and gutters, storm sewer structures and pavement substructure.

  • For people walking and rolling, we will add bump outs and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant ramps at intersections. At intersections with traffic signals, we will add accessible pedestrian signals (APS), durable crosswalk markings and countdown timers The project also creates a green boulevard between the road and sidewalk with trees and pedestrian level lighting.
  • For people biking, we will add bike-only areas along Lyndale and Humboldt avenues. The Lyndale lanes will connect Webber Park with existing routes east of the corridor.
  • For people riding transit, we will prepare for D Line service along 44th Avenue with enhanced bus shelters.
