Project Description:
This project is a joint project between the City of Minneapolis Department of Public Works (City), the Downtown Improvement District (DID), and Dezign Line.

The pilot is intended to demonstrate a new type of temporary to semi-permanent bumpout and explore the effectiveness of using temporary bumpouts ahead of a permanent treatment. The project will also evaluate the products durability, particularly over a Minneapolis winter season.
