The process begins. Come back in four years to find out the conclusion.

Any thoughts as to how transit fits into that corridor? Does rebuilding bridges here make sense?

And does “on street” bike lanes mean protected bike lanes, as it apparently does when Hennepin redoes roads in Richfield?

Make sense? I wish they more strongly considered going back to the historic design with a traffic circle. Broadway is under 12K, Lowry brings in about 6K, the parkway carries 4200.

Put Broadway/Lowry/Oakdale back to a traffic circle at grade, with the parkway and bike trails grade separated going under. We'd have two small overpasses rather than large oversized freeway-style overpasses. Having Broadway turn into a freeway design makes everything terrible

Your idea makes much more sense than Hennepin County’s.
