Oak Grove/15th St Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Improvements
In 2020, the Minneapolis Public Works Department will make safety improvements for people walking, biking, and driving at the intersection of Oak Grove and 15th St. The goal of this project is to improve safety for all users of the street and will replace the temporary bollard intersection treatments that were installed in 2018 and 2019 with permanent improvements.
Construction began in July of 2020, and should be completed by the end of September 2020. For information on road closures associated with this project, please see the City’s street closure map.
This project will include the construction of a new concrete bump-outs on the north and south sides of Oak Grove Street at 15th Street, the installation of a permanent Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacon (RRFB), new pedestrian ramps, concrete curb-delineated bike lanes, and geometric changes to the intersection to support safety. These changes will reduce the distance pedestrian have to travel across the intersection, increase pedestrian visibility, install ADA-compliant pedestrian ramps, and prevent parked vehicles from encroaching on the bike lanes on Oak Grove between 15th Street and Hennepin/Lyndale.
Temporary rail-mounted bollard bump-outs and a temporary Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacon (RRFB) were installed at the intersection in 2019.
Some safety features were installed in 2019.
