Near North Safe Routes to School

In 2022, the Minneapolis Public Works Department plans to improve 0.98 miles of 16th Ave N between Queen Ave N and Aldrich Ave N. Project improvements will consist of traffic calming and bicycle and pedestrian improvements. The corridor is designated as a bicycle boulevard in the City’s 2011 Bicycle Master Plan. This means encouraging bicycle use and safety along the corridor will be a priority of this project.
