Elm St and Rollins Ave Resurfacing
In Summer of 2020, the City of Minneapolis Public Works Department plans to resurface and provide new paint striping to include existing bicycle facilities on Elm Street and Rollins Avenue from 24th Avenue SE to 15th Avenue SE. This project will continue to connect bicycle facilities on Elm Street to the newly implemented two-way protected bikeway on Rollins Avenue and to existing bike lanes on 15th Avenue SE.
The goals of this bikeway project include:
- Reduce vehicular travel speeds
- Reorganize roadway space
- Increase safety for non-motorized users
- Support existing and future bicycle demand
- Improve bicycle network connectivity
