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.
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
