Stay Healthy Streets during COVID-19

The City of Minneapolis made updates to streets in response to COVID-19.


Street updates in response to covid-19

Other updates

  • The City also installed 16 miles of Stay Healthy Streets to support comfortable walking, rolling and biking while social distancing.
  • Those have been removed as the State of Minnesota guidance evolves for the Stay Safe Minnesota COVID-19 response.
  • The City is taking lessons learned from these emergency installations to inform future investments to support traffic calming, walking and biking on routes prioritized based on safety and community input.

Pick-up zones

The City has issued permits for and installed more than 50 Pick-up only zones for businesses. The Pick-up zones allow parking for up to 10 minutes for people picking up take-our food or other items.

Pedestrian push buttons

Pedestrian push buttons

The City has transitioned traffic signals to reduce the need for pedestrians to push a button to get a walk signal at more than 400 signalized intersections. Crews are placing signs on the signal posts notifying people that the signal will change automatically. For blind and visually impaired people, the button will still be operational in order to call the audible features.
