Re: North Loop Green - Hines - 350 N 5th St(?) - 35 stories / 393'

Anyone have the old renderings of the development the Pohlads originally proposed around Target Field? Pretty sure that also didn't meet the Warehouse District's design guidelines.

Re: Ayd Mill Road

I think it likely will be the start and spine of a network. I also think it will take some years before there is sufficient momentum and interest. Recall that the heart of the Midtown Greenway opened in 2004, and 16 years later Minneapolis is only beginning to build a protected network that intersec...

Re: Ayd Mill Road

Not to say that it wouldn't be useful, but doing something on Selby has much more significant impacts than on the others: - Selby is 46' (ish) curb to curb, so on 3-lane sections a cycletrack means removing both sides of parking in a busy commercial district - The trail comes out on the north side o...

Re: Ayd Mill Road

I think there are real opportunities for bike improvements on Jefferson, St. Clair, Grand (to connect to Summit), and Hamline. This part of Hamline in particular is part of the city/county 4-3 study. Selby is probably the least likely/most difficult to make improvements on.

Re: Ayd Mill Road

There will be trail spurs at each ramp (Jefferson, St. Clair, Grand, Hamline, Selby) connecting the trail up to the surface. But there is a need for more work to make those streets comfortable when you're up there.

Re: B Line Lake St Rapid Bus, Midtown Rail Transit

The abundant green of the Midtown Greenway trench isn't an incidental quality, it's key to the success of the trail as a recreational amenity and intimately connected to its appeal as a commuting option. You can see that in the very different use that a trail like the Hiawatha trail. Sometimes there...

Re: B Line Lake St Rapid Bus, Midtown Rail Transit

Removing the sloped green sides of the Greenway and replacing them with retaining walls would be a crime. Functional concerns are not the only concerns worth paying attention to.

Re: Ayd Mill Road

The bike/pedestrian trail is only 12’ wide? That does not seem wide enough for both bikes and pedestrians. Why can’t they squeeze some space out of the 15’ northbound lane and the 6’-8” boulevard to get the trail closer to 14’ or 15’? The feedback they received was that people wanted separation bet...

Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

Fun fact: there are 112 public 18-hole regulation courses in the Twin Cities metro. Clearly those African American golfers would have had no other options had Hiawatha closed.

Re: Go Minneapolis - Transportation Action Plan

Would 4th/5th be useful as relievers for Marq2? They are comparatively far outside the downtown core, and I imagine suburban commuters would feel less comfortable on them since they have fewer businesses/foot traffic/eyes on the street.

Re: Go Minneapolis - Transportation Action Plan

The "All Ages and Abilities Network" plan for bikes is pretty wild. Virtually every planned bikeway in the city is replanned as a "low-stress bikeway" which seems to be either a protected lane or a bike boulevard.

(Notable that Hennepin north of Lake is one of them.)

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

^And have to be, btw. County/state roads are not covered in last year's legislation so the only way most of those roads can be changed is via a speed study, and that might go the wrong way.

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

There were two separate authorities granted. One allows the city to set all "residential roadways" at 25mph without an engineering study. The other allows cities to set any speed limit on roads they own, provided that they "must establish procedures based on a city’s safety, engineering, and traffic...

MnDOT/the city are looking at possible changes to this stretch when MnDOT does a pavement preservation project on Robert in a few years. I imagine this will add some urgency there.
