Project information Project overview The project objectives are to improve safety and operations, and to improve experience for people driving, transporting freight, riding transit, biking, walking 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 improvements: For people walking, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant ramps and sidewalk Accessible Pedestrian Signals (APS), durable crosswalk markings and countdown timers. For people biking, a new dedicated bicycle facility and wayfinding signage for the Grand Rounds Scenic Bikeway System. For people riding transit, enhanced bus shelters and wayfinding signage. Streetscaping elements, removing unnecessary retaining walls and the installation of a boulevard, ornamental fencing and lighting. Safety improvements, adding 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. For the roadway, replacing 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.
