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. This resurfacing project provides an opportunity to improve the overall safety along the corridor and bring this street more in line with our city policies and goals such as the the Complete Streets Policy, Vision Zero Policy and the draft Transportation Action Plan. This segment of Franklin Avenue West is identified in both the current Bicycle Master Plan and draft Transportation Action Plan as a bicycle corridor.
