Franklin Avenue W Resurfacing (Hennepin Ave to Penn/Oliver Ave)
In 2021, the Minneapolis Public Works Department plans to resurface Franklin Avenue West between Hennepin Avenue and Penn/Oliver Avenue. The resurfacing project provides an opportunity to implement a bikeway on this segment of Franklin Avenue West, as identified in the Minneapolis Bicycle Master Plan and the draft Transportation Action Plan.
This project will coordinate with future adjacent reconstruction projects including Franklin Ave W between Hennepin Ave and Lyndale Ave (2022) and Hennepin Ave between Douglas Ave and Lake Street (2023).
The goals of this project include:
- Improve the overall safety along the corridor for all users
- Enhance comfort and predictability of all users
- Support existing and future bicycle demand and improve bicycle network connectivity
