Imagine a Citywide Network of Connected Bikeways ...

 ...that supports everyone from children to grandparents to feel safe riding to work, school, the grocery store, or anywhere in Minneapolis.

The Bikeways for Everyone campaign supports building 30 new miles of well-designed protected bikeways by 2020 to make an expanded citywide network. This network attracts people to our city, enhances businesses, reduces pollution, improves public health, adds new green space, and enhances quality of life.

    North Minneapolis Greenway Demonstration

    If you live in North Minneapolis, by now you may have heard people talking about a proposed North-South greenway that would most likely run the length of North Humboldt and/or Irving Avenues between 44th Avenue North and Glenwood Avenue North, eventually connecting with Van White Boulevard.

    This proposal is currently in its third year of outreach in the North Minneapolis community and the City of Minneapolis is now considering bringing a greenway demonstration project to some of the residents on the proposed route so that people can see how a greenway could be used. The demonstration (which could last up to a year) aims to take place on Irving Avenue North between Folwell Park and Jordan Park. It would convert the street to a space for bicycles and pedestrians with low-cost elements that can be installed and removed easily. This demonstration would give you and your neighbors a chance to try it out and see for yourself how a greenway could possibly fit into your community. If the temporary greenway is successful, it may be possible to convert the space to a permanent greenway in the future.
