What is Vision Zero?
Vision Zero is an international movement for safe streets. The City of Minneapolis has joined the national Vision Zero movement to end deaths and severe injuries on our streets. Each year, about 166 people die or suffer from severe injuries in traffic crashes on Minneapolis streets (Average from 2016 to 2019). That is unacceptable and preventable. The Minneapolis City Council adopted a Vision Zero Resolution on September 20, 2017. It commits to the goal of zero traffic deaths and severe injuries on City streets by 2027.
See the map of Vision Zero Projects, and scroll down the page for examples of High Visibility Improvements coming to Nicollet Avenue and other Vision Zero project areas. You will be seeing changes along Nicollet over the next couple weeks that are a result of Vision Zero. If you have questions regarding any of them please contact the City Team directly at .
