Project update

This project is being postponed from summer 2020 to summer 2021 due to 35W detours. This route is expected to have high volumes of traffic until the 35W project is completed.


In the summer of 2021, the City of Minneapolis Public Works Department plans to sealcoat Diamond Lake Road, from I-35W South to Portland Avenue. The sealcoat project provides an opportunity to implement a bikeway on this segment of Diamond Lake Road to fill an important gap in the existing bikeway network, as identified in the Minneapolis Bicycle Master Plan.

Public Works will collect corridor data and complete a parking study
