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 2020.

Project information

Project overview

The project objectives are to improve safety and operations, and to improve experience for those driving, transporting freight, using transit, on a bicycle, on foot or needing accessibility features.

Early designs maintain a 2-lane roadway section on the west end of the project but will include a dedicated bicycle facility. On the east end of the project (along Lyndale Avenue) early designs call for a 3-lane section to improve safety and allow for the implementation of a bicycle facility.

The project will include, but is not limited to, the following elements:

  • Pedestrian improvements, such as Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant ramps and sidewalk Accessible Pedestrian Signals (APS), durable crosswalk markings and countdown timers.
  • Bicycle improvements, such as a new dedicated bicycle facility and wayfinding signage for the Grand Rounds Scenic Bikeway System.
  • Transit improvements, such as enhanced bus shelters and wayfinding signage.
  • Streetscaping elements, such as removing unnecessary retaining walls and the installation of a boulevard, ornamental fencing and lighting.
  • Safety improvements, such as additional dedicated turn lanes, new traffic signal mast arms, additional primary traffic signal indications and as the removal of unwarranted traffic signals where data and engineering can support them.
  • Roadway improvements such as the replacement of the deteriorated curbs and gutters, storm sewer structures, and pavement substructure.

As part of the planning and design phases of the project, staff will evaluate the potential for burying overhead utilities that would be delivered as a supplemental activity.

Property acquisition

The acquisition of privately-owned real property is sometimes necessary when making improvements to county roads. The document below provides information to those whose land must be either partially acquired or acquired in its entirety by Hennepin County. This document is shared directly with these individuals. It is provided here as a resource for anyone who may have misplaced the document.
