Bicycle Master Plan

The current Minneapolis Bicycle Master Plan was adopted by City Council in 2011. The purpose of the plan is to establish goals, objectives, and benchmarks that improve safety and mobility for bicyclists and increase the number of trips taken by bicycle. The Bicycle Master Plan includes bicycle policy, existing conditions, a needs analysis, a list of projects and initiatives, and funding strategies to be implemented to complete the plan.

Protected Bikeway Update to the Bicycle Master Plan (June 2015)

The 2011 Bicycle Master Plan addresses a broad range of bikeway facility types, including off-street trails, bike boulevards, bike lanes, and shared lanes, but it does not specifically address on-street protected bikeways. The City of Minneapolis also approved a Climate Action Plan in 2013 recommending implementation of 30 miles of on-street protected bike facilities by 2020. This plan update identifies priority locations, capital costs, and maintenance costs for implementation of protected bikeways in Minneapolis.
