Move Minnesota, Hennepin for People, and local allies are working hard to get dedicated bus lanes and protected bike lanes on Hennepin Avenue South in Minneapolis. The recommended street design from City staff now includes the bus lanes and bike lanes we’ve been fighting for—a huge step forward!—but we still need a strong show of support to get the City Council on board.
The City of Minneapolis will hold a virtual open house on the Hennepin Ave South recommended design on January 13. This is a great opportunity to learn about the City’s recommendation and express support for the dedicated bus lanes and protected bike lanes currently included. Join the live event online.
The City is also accepting public comments online through January 28. Even if you’ve taken other actions and submitted comments earlier in the planning process this is considered a new comment period and you should speak up again now to make your support for the recommended design loud and clear.
Join us in telling the City of Minneapolis: “I strongly support full-time dedicated bus lanes and protected bike lanes on Hennepin Avenue South. We need both! I strongly support the City’s recommended design for this street. Thank you!” Comment online now.
