West Lake Multimodal Transportation Study

This is an area wide multimodal transportation study that is intended to assess opportunities to improve safety, access, connectivity, and mobility for all modes of travel surrounding the West Lake LRT Station area.

Why is this study being done?

As a result of the Southwest Light Rail Transit project’s Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Metropolitan Council and the City of Minneapolis, an area wide multimodal transportation study is being conducted for the West Lake LRT Station area. Study efforts will be coordinated with partner agencies to identify non-motorized needs, challenges, and opportunities in the vicinity of the planned West Lake LRT Station. Motorized travel will also be analyzed to guide intersection and roadway modifications that were identified as part of the preliminary designs for the West Lake LRT Station area.

The goal of the study is to identify opportunities to address non-motorized and motorized travel within the West Lake LRT Station area with projects that can be implemented as a part of the construction of the Southwest LRT or as part of other capital initiatives. Potential longer-term improvements that would not occur before the LRT opening will also be identified.

There will be particular attention to:

General Study Limits

North: Dean Parkway/Cedar Lake Avenue
South: 32nd Street W
East: E Lake Calhoun Parkway
West: France Avenue

Study Duration

This study was conducted between March 2015 and February 2016.
