City of Minneapolis Transportation Update: Blaisdell Ave S protected bike lane project. The project has received the necessary approvals for installation and our Traffic Division plans to install the project next week, August 15.
Pending good weather, the existing striping will be removed first and the new lines will be painted by 8/18. Other pavement markings, signs, and white delineators will be installed soon after. No street closures are needed, although temporary lane shifts will be in place while crews are installing lines and symbols.
As with any new project there is a bit of a transition period, so we appreciate your patience as you and other users get acquainted to the new design. If you have any questions or feedback, do not hesitate to contact me – my contact information is listed below.
